Paper Abstract

In this paper report on the design of a 2D PBG filter in polymeric material. The filter is a Fabry-Perot cavity having a self-sustained membrane configuration. A deep parametric analysis has been carried out for improving the performance, taking also into account the fabrication tolerances Best performance in terms of lateral confinement have been obtained in case of square lattice. As for materials, polystyrene shown best in terms of refractive index value, length of the photonic crystal structure and attenuation value in the band gap. The filter can be used either in sensing applications or in telecommunication field.
