Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate full two-dimensional focalization of light beams at visible frequencies by a three-dimensional woodpile photonic crystal. The focalization (the flat lensing) with focal distances of the order of 50–70 μm is experimentally demonstrated. Experimental results are compared with numerical calculations and interpreted by harmonic expansion studies.
