By applying the properties of Fabry–Perot resonance and Rayleigh anomaly, we have shown that a photonic crystal slab can scatter the light from an incident plane wave into a diffracted light with a very large reflection or transmission coefficient. The enhanced field is either a propagating diffracted wave (with a grazing angle of diffraction) or a weakly evanescent diffracted wave, so it can be particularly useful for applications requiring an enhanced propagating field (or an enhanced field…

Natural slab photonic crystals in centric diatoms

It is shown that the girdle of the centric diatom Coscinodiscus granii is a well-defined slab photonic crystal, causing, under more natural conditions when immersed in water, a pseudogap for modes in the near infrared, which disperses towards the visible spectral range when light incides at larger angles.



Modal formulation for diffraction by absorbing photonic crystal slabs.

The semianalytic approach allows efficient and accurate calculation of the absorption of an array with a complex unit cell and gives direct physical insight into the absorption mechanism in such structures, which can be used to enhance the absorption.

Extraordinary optical reflection from sub-wavelength cylinder arrays.

A multiple scattering analysis of the reflectance of a periodic array of sub-wavelength cylinders shows that at the lowest resonance frequency, and in the absence of absorption, the wave is perfectly reflected even for vanishingly small cylinder radii.

Extraordinary optical transmission: coupling of the Wood-Rayleigh anomaly and the Fabry-Perot resonance.

By combining the effects of the Wood-Rayleigh anomaly and the Fabry-Perot resonance, transmission efficiencies of one-dimensional metallo-dielectric gratings on substrates can be significantly improved compared to when these two phenomena work separately.
