Paper Abstract

This work investigates the significance of the number of periods in two-dimensional photonic crystals. Models have been developed to study various photonic crystal properties (Reflection, Photonic crystal band gap). The numbers of photonic crystal periods, length of periods, and material properties have been investigated to determine their effect on the losses in the waveguide. The model focuses on a square period and has been designed to study transmission properties and the effects of period length. A finite difference frequency domain (FDFD) model has also been created to calculate the photonic band structure. Additionally, a simplified study focuses on the transmission of light through photonic crystal layers.
