Abstract

We present a concept of graded photonic crystals used to enhance the control of light propagation. Gradual modifications of the lattice periodicity make it possible to bend the light at the micrometer scale. This effect is tailored by parametric studies of the isofrequency curves. As a demonstration, we propose a two-dimensional graded photonic crystal that could provide frequency-selective tunable bending.
