Diamond and zinc-blende photonic crystals are studied both in the purely dielectric case and in the presence of small inclusions of a low absorbing metal. It is shown that small metal inclusions can have a dramatic effect on the photonic band structure. Several complete photonic band gaps ~CPBG’s ! can open in the spectrum, between the second and third, fifth and sixth, and eighth and ninth bands. Unlike in the purely dielectric case, in the presence of small inclusions of a low absorbing metal… 
Effect of the inclusion of small metallic components in a two-dimensional dielectric photonic crystal with large full band gap
In this study, we investigate the effect of metallic inclusion modeled as perfect conductor on a dielectric photonic crystal (silicon/air) with large full band gap. The dielectric crystal consists of
Photonic Stopband Tuning in Metallo-Dielectric Photonic Crystals
One of the most appealing aspects of photonic crystal structures is the photonic bandgap created in structures with suf fi ciently high dielectric contrasts between constituent materials. Periodic
Comparative studies on photonic band structures of diamond and hexagonal diamond using the multiple scattering method
Photonic band structures are investigated for both diamond and hexagonal diamond crystals composed of dielectric spheres, and absolute photonic band gaps (PBGs) are found in both cases. In agreement
Self-assembly route for photonic crystals with a bandgap in the visible region.
It is shown using computer simulations that two structures that would enable a bandgap in the visible region, diamond and pyrochlore, can be self-assembled in one crystal structure from a binary colloidal dispersion.
Diamond-structured photonic crystals
A collection of robust complete three-dimensional dielectric photonic-bandgap structures for the visible and near-infrared regimes based on the diamond morphology together with their specific fabrication techniques are surveyed.
Engineering the structure-induced enhanced absorption in three-dimensional metallic photonic crystals.
This paper investigates the dependence of this enhanced absorption on several structural parameters of the crystal by means of a plane-wave-based transfer-matrix method in combination with an analytic model expansion approach and finds that when the metallic layers are brought out of touch, the magnitude of the absorption peaks grows rather than decays, in contrast with the conventional wisdom that the connectivity of metallic structure can enhance the absorption.
Two-dimensional metallo-dielectric photonic crystals embedded in anodic porous alumina for optical wavelengths
A theoretical study is presented for hexagonal lattice metallic pillar photonic crystals in anodic porous alumina with a lattice constant of 500nm. The objective of the investigation is to design a
Investigation of photonic band gaps in triangular lattices of metallic square rods in dielectric background
We studied, by using a modified plane-wave method, the band gap properties of two-dimensional metallodielectric photonic crystals with triangular lattice of square rods embedded into backgrounds with


Photonic Crystals at Near-Infrared and Optical Wavelengths
As demonstrated for the example of a diamond and zinc blende structure of dielectric spheres, small inclusions of a low absorbing metal with the volume fraction f m can have a dramatic effect on a
Towards Complete Photonic Band Gap Structures Below Infrared Wavelengths
Photonic crystals are structures with a periodically modulated dielectric constant. In analogy to the case of an electron moving in a periodic potential, certain photon frequencies can become
Manipulating Colloidal Crystallization for Photonic Applications: From Self-Organization to Do-it-Yourself Organization
Photonic crystals are regular three-dimensional (3D) structures with which the propagation and spontaneous emission of photons can be manipulated in new ways if the feature sizes are roughly half the
