Abstract

We present two efficient and accurate models for the analysis and optimization of reflection at the interface of three-dimensional (3D) photonic crystal structures. For the most general photonic crystal interfaces, we develop a rigorous technique based on mode matching at the interface. We also explain a more efficient (yet accurate) model based on effective impedance definition for the analysis of 3D photonic crystals (PC) structures that are highly desired for practical applications. The two techniques are used to model practical 3D PC structures, and the issue of reflection minimization at the interface of such structures is addressed.
