Paper Abstract

The measured reflection spectra of two-dimensional photonic crystal slabs consist of an asymmetric peak on top of an oscillating background. For p-polarized light, the asymmetry of the peak flips for angles of incidence beyond Brewster's angle. We explain the observed line shapes with a Fano model that includes loss and use a waveguide model to predict the resonance frequencies of the photonic crystal slab. Finite-difference time domain calculations support the model and show that the resonance due to a higher order mode disappears when the substrate refractive index is increased beyond ns = 2.04. This is readily explained by the cut-off condition of the modes given by the waveguide model.
