Paper Abstract

We observed photonic band-gap disappearance on Bragg-grating wavelength filters with Si photonic-wire waveguides, and studied the physical mechanism with theoretical and numerical analyses. This is a unique phenomenon observed in channel waveguides with very high index-contrast between the waveguide core and cladding materials. The photonic band-gap disappearance was observed in structures where two different optical field distributions of standing wave degenerate.
