Paper Abstract

A design strategy is proposed to optimize the structure of photonic crystal (PC) slabs in order to achieve high reflection on its interface. A broad band (Δλ/λ > 19%) and ultrahigh (>95%) reflection spectrum can be realized for one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) PC slabs. Tolerance analysis of design parameters reveals distinct merits for different PC structures: as to maintain high reflection, 1D PC slabs show better structural tolerance, while 2D PC ones have a much greater tolerance for the material parameter. Such a difference may provide a criterion for the design of PCs-assist mirror structure in optoelectronic devices.
