Paper Abstract

We present the effect of structural randomness on the formation of Anderson localization (AL) in random photonic crystals (RPCs) by using a two-dimensional FDTD (Finite-Difference Time-Domain) computational method. The RPC consists of a silicon substrate with an array of air holes aligned in a triangular lattice shape. The structural randomness is introduced by randomly dislocating the positions of air holes. By investigating impulse response of the system, we obtained frequency spectra and Q-factors of long-lived modes. The modal characteristics of the modes as a function of structural randomness in RPCs and optimization of the structural randomness to achieve high photon confinement efficiency are achieved.
