Photonic stop bands in quasi-random nanoporous anodic alumina structures

Maksymov, Ivan; Ferre-Borrull, Josep; Pallares, Josep; Marsal, Lluis F


The existence of photonic stop bands in the self-assembled arrangement of pores in porous anodic alumina structures is investigated by means of rigorous 2D finite-difference time-domain calculations. Self-assembled porous anodic alumina shows a random distribution of domains, each of them with a very definite triangular pattern, constituting a quasi-random structure. The observed stop bands are similar to those of photonic quasicrystals or random structures. As the pores of nanoporous anodic...[Show more]
