Paper Abstract

Two-dimensional photonic lattices with a low-index defect have been studied. Simulations demonstrate that this type of structure has potential for realizing single-spatial mode operation from a relatively large emitting aperture, making it ideal for fiber coupling applications. A 2-D finite difference model is used to calculate the radiation loss of the modes in various low-index defect based two-dimensional photonic lattices. The simulation results are also compared to the results from a comprehensive the 3-D bi-directional beam propagation model. These calculations have been used to guide mask design and the experimental realization of the defect VCSEL devices.
