Paper Abstract

A strongly anisotropic photonic crystal structure was designed using form birefringence. It has a low group velocity close to a split band edge (SBE) and large field enhancements proportional to the fourth power of the number of periods are predicted. Numerical results are presented illustrating the bandgap behavior as a function of anisotropy and an effective negative index property is discussed.
