Abstract

Self-imaging was observed in simulations and in microwave experiments that were performed on a face-centered cubic photonic crystal structure. The structure was composed of dielectric spheres that generally were smaller than the incident wavelength. Such self-imaging phenomena occurred along the direction of propagation and at distances smaller than the propagating wavelength.

Simulation. (a) Power distribution [dBm] in the yz plane at frequency f=5 GHz for a succession of distances 5 mm apart. The scale in the xy plane is in centimeters. The structure was made from loosely packed spheres with sphere diameter D=10 mm and refractive index nsphere=1.5. (b) Power at the center point, y=z=0, as a function of the distance along the propagation direction.
