Two-dimensional photonic band-gap mirrors at 850 and 980 nm


Summary form only given. Photonic band-gap (PBG) crystals can be fabricated in semiconductor devices through the etching of patterns of holes in the device, resulting in a periodic dielectric structure. One of the more practical uses of photonic crystals in optoelectronic devices is for thin, high-reflectivity mirrors. The use of hexagonal arrays of etched circular holes results in a 2-D photonic band-gap mirror that can be tuned to a specific wavelength by varying the hole radius and the lattice spacing. 2-D mirror characterization is performed by evaluating the light emission from an active waveguide.
