In this study, three-component One-Dimensional (1D) Photonic Crystal (PC) structures were investigated by modeling them as two-component PCs with an additional regular layer. The Gap Map approach and the Transfer Matrix Method were used in order to mathematically describe these structures. The introduction of a third component to a 1D PC allows manipulation of the optical contrast to a high degree of precision by varying the thickness and refractive index of the additional layer. It also partially reduces the area of the photonic band gaps (PBGs) on the gap map, leaving the remainder of the PBG area unchanged from that of the gap map for the original, two-component, PC. Using this approach to decrease the optical contrast in photonic crystals allows omni-directional bands to be obtained in highcontrast periodic structures constructed from, for example, an array of silicon and air.

Design of One-dimensional Photonic Crystals Using Combination of Band Diagram and Photonic Gap Map Approaches PEROVA, TANIA (American Institute of Physics, 2008)The design of one-dimensional photonic crystals and the analysis of their optical properties have been performed using band diagram and forbidden gap map methods. It has been shown that the latter method is more useful for ...
Suppression of Residual Single-Photon Absorption Relative to Two-Photon Absorption in High Finesse Planar Microcavities DONEGAN, JOHN FRANCIS; GUO, WEI-HUA; BRADLEY, LOUISE (2008)Suppression of residual single-photon absorption (SPA) relative to two-photon absorption (TPA) in a high finesse GaAs planar microcavity is explored. The TPA photocurrent becomes larger than the SPA photocurrent as long ...
