Abstract

We describe the fabrication and optical transmission of two-dimensional periodic dielectric structures with photonic band gaps in the near infrared. The structures consist of triangular arrays of air cylinders embedded in a glass matrix, with center-to-center nearest-neighbor separations between 1.08 and 0.73 μm. The band gaps corresponding to the first Brillouin zone’s boundaries occur at wavelengths between 2.5 and 1.1 μm. For each array size, the band gaps along the two high-symmetry propagation directions are spectrally overlapped for light polarized perpendicular to the cylinder axes. The observed positions, widths, and polarization dependence of the band gaps are in good agreement with theoretical calculations.
