## Abstract

The photonic band gap (PBG) properties of two classes of two-dimensional (2-D) triangular lattice fabricated by holographic lithography are investigated numerically. The effect of intensity threshold on the filling ratio and then the shape of “atoms”, and the corresponding photonic gap are comprehensively studied. Our results show that the recording geometry for a given 2-D triangular lattice is not unique, and this fact gives us more freedom in choosing proper recording geometry to obtain larger bandgaps.
