Abstract

A novel method is presented for determining the dimensional parameters of one-dimensional (1-D) photonic crystals (PCs) with specified bandgap characteristics. Conventionally, the bandgaps are determined by solving an eigenvalue equation on a fine frequency mesh. This approach requires considerable computation time and is therefore not suited for use in the optimization cycles needed in dimensional design.
