Paper Abstract

Feasibility studies and statistical analyses generated using specially tailored software tools of 2D photonic bandgap waveguides containing structural deviations are presented. Waveguide structures comprising two wide angle bends within a photonic bandgap structure were used in this analysis. The results demonstrate that small variations in the location and size of ordered media create significant changes in the photonic bandgap properties of the material. Deviations with a statistical mean of 20 nm in locaiton and size of this particular model designed for 1.55 μm wavelength are enough to cause the waveguide transmission to reduce by up to 90%.
