Sharp bends in photonic crystal waveguides as nonlinear Fano resonators

Miroshnichenko, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


We demonstrate that high transmission through sharp bends in photonic crystal waveguides can be described by a simple model of the Fano resonance where the waveguide bend plays a role of a specific localized defect.We derive effective discrete equations for two types of the waveguide bends in two-dimensional photonic crystals and obtain exact analytical solutions for the resonant transmission and reflection. This approach allows us to get a deeper insight into the physics of resonant...[Show more]
