What to Expect

  • What is a Photonic Crystal?

  • Experimental Procedure

  • Modeling/Results

  • Conclusion


Photonic Crystal

  • “Photonic crystals are materials patterned with a periodicity in dielectric constant, which can create a range of ‘forbidden’ frequencies called a photonic bandgap. Photons with energies lying in the bandgap cannot propagate through the medium. This provides the opportunity to shape and mould the flow of light for photonic information technology.”

    • J.D. Joannopoulos, Pierre R. Villeneuve & Shanhui Fan

  • Applications include

  • Waveguides

  • LED light extraction

  • Ultrafast photonic crystal nanocavity laser

  • High speed communication

  • High speed information processing

How can we make 3-D Photonic Crystals?

Bottom Up

Top Down

FIB

Holes in 1-D crystals

Accurate, small feature size

  • Shadow mask sputtering

  • Periodic Array of Pillars

  • Quick and easy


Some Quick Physics Facts

  • Index of Refraction:

  • Snell’s law

  • The Electric Field Equation:


Mathematical Interlude

n1 n2 n3 … nN-1nN ns

A0 A1 A2 … … AN As

B0 B1 B2 … … BNBs

x0 x1 x2 … … xNxs

The Electric Field can be shown for different refractive indices as:

So we get a vector representing the amplitudes of the wave function.

Yeh. (2004)


Mathematical Interlude (continued)

We can describe light at the interface of materials with different refractive indices with the dynamical matrices:

so that light passing through the interface responds such that

.

Also, as it travels through a material, the change is shown by the transfer matrix:

Yeh. (2004)


Mathematical Interlude (Recap)

  • By acting on the vector representing light passing through the system with the matrices describing the environment we can predict the transmission spectrum.

  • Recall:

    But metals have an imaginary index of refraction (n) so

    let’s write:

    But Φhas real an imaginary parts Re(Φ) and Im(Φ) so

    where we see the Decay term.

What Next???

  • Produce 3-D photonic crystals

  • using Shadow mask or FIB

  • Model in higher dimension

  • TEM/AFM for layer thickness

What we Expect

What we Hope For

  • Evidence of 3-D from diffraction pattern

  • Measureable band-gaps in oblique directions

  • Improved modeling

  • both polar and radial angle band-gap dependance

  • Predict band-gap

  • Test the effect of electric field on optical the band-gap
