Abstract

We design a photonic crystal T-junction waveguide on the basis of the nonradiative surface mode and further optimize the transmission ratio of our surface mode photonic crystal T-junction waveguide with the guide of coupled-mode theory. Compared with a traditional bandgap photonic crystal T-junction waveguide, our surface mode T-junction waveguide can obtain almost zero reflectance and good transmission. Better still, its size is just half of the size of bandgap photonic crystal waveguide branches. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first time that such a high-efficiency T-junction waveguide that uses the surface mode as the guided mode is proposed.
