Abstract

We point out that 2D photonic crystals (PhCs) can support surface bands that are pinned to Dirac points. These bands can be made very flat by optimizing the parameters of the system. Surface modes are found at the interface of two different cladding materials: one is a PhC with Dirac linear dispersion for the TE mode, and the other is a PhC that has a broad TE gap at the Dirac frequency.
