Two-dimensional photonic band-gap structures as quasi-metals

By P.J. Roberts, T.A. Birks, P.St.J. Russell, T.J. Shepherd and D.M. Atkin


By considering waves that propagate out of the transverse plane, we show that common high index materials (eg GaAs) with a 2D array of air holes can act in some ways like a 3D photonic band-gap structure. In particular, we describe a dielectric "quasi-metal" that reflects all propagating light incident from free space
