Investigation of the Propagation Length of Bloch Surface Waves on One Dimensional Photonic Crystals

Abstract

A 1D photonic crystal structure sustaining optical surface waves is investigated. The propagation length of the surface mode is studied both using an eigenmode model and a rigorous time domain solver. The two models show good... [ view full abstract ]
