Paper Abstract

We review guided-mode resonant photonic lattices by addressing their functionalities and potential device applications. The 1D canonical model is rich in properties and conceptually transparent, with all the main conclusions being applicable to 2D metasurfaces and periodic photonic slabs. We explain the operative physical mechanisms grounded in lateral leaky Bloch modes. We summarize the band dynamics of the leaky stopband. With several examples, we demonstrate that Mie scattering is not causative in resonant reflection. Illustrated applications include a wideband reflector at infrared bands as well as resonant reflectors with triangular profiles. We quantify the improved efficiency of a silicon reflector operating in the visible region relative to loss reduction as realizable with sample hydrogenation. A resonant polarizer with record performance is presented.
