Beaming Effect from Increased-index Photonic Crystal Waveguides

Morrison, Steven; Kivshar, Yuri


We study the beaming effect of light for the case of increased-index photonic crystal (PhC) waveguides, formed through the omission of low-dielectric media in the waveguide region. We employ the finite-difference time-domain numerical method for characterizing the beaming effect and determining the mechanisms of loss and the overall efficiency of the directional emission. We find that, while this type of PhC waveguide is capable of producing a highly collimated emission as was demonstrated...[Show more]
