Paper Abstract

Bulk spectrum and edge modes of 2D photonic crystals with parity and time-reversal symmetries broken in a different way are investigated. It is shown that for specific values of parameter of the symmetry reduction the bulk modes exhibit a peculiar one-way Dirac-like dispersion. The domain wall formed by two crystals with the symmetry reduction parameter reversed is shown to exhibit an edge mode which coexists with the one-way bulk Dirac regime. In addition, we demonstrate that parity-time symmetric interfaces between photonic crystals with gain and loss support a new class of dissipation-less surface modes.
