Narrow-band microcavity waveguides in photonic crystals.


A novel device, formed by a widely spaced periodic array of defects in a photonic bandgap crystal, is studied with the goal of designing a waveguide with a prescribed narrow bandwidth. Tunneling of radiation between the defect sites allows wave propagation along the line of the defects. An analytical study based on the weakly coupled cavity model is… (More)
