Si •  Crystal – periodic arrangement of atoms/molecules •  Propagating electrons “see” periodic potential due to atoms/molecules. •  Conduction properties dictated by crystal geometry. •  Crystal lattice introduces energy bandgap (Eg) freq [c/a] •  Optical analogy is photonic crystal •  Periodic potential due to lattice of dielectric material. •  Propagation of photons controlled by dielectric contrast and (r/a) ratio. Band Gap •  Can engineer a photonic bandgap Nanostructures Research Group CENTER FOR SOLID STATE ELECTRONICS RESEARCH

DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A: Cleared for public releases; distribution is unlimited. •  Photonic crystals/PBM shown great deal of promise for true integrated optics. •  Waveguides with small bends possible making compact integrated photonic circuits (IPCs) achievable. •  Design/fabrication is challenging •  Efficient simulation tools needed to realize very low loss IPCs rods http://www/photonics.tfp.uni-karlsruhe.de/research.html http://pages.ief.u-psud.fr bend splitter resonator cavity Nanostructures Research Group CENTER FOR SOLID STATE ELECTRONICS RESEARCH

Introduces “artificial” anisotropic electric/magnetic* conductivities within domain boundaries allowing for absorption/attenuation waves. •  Employs a numerical “split-field” approach allowing perfect (theoretical) transmission into absorbing layer (regardless of frequency, polarization, or angle of incidence). •  Perfect electric conductor (PEC) surrounds PML ABC •  Technique “simulates” effect of J.
