Abstract

Topological photonic crystal provides a robust platform for nanophotonic devices. However, few reports have been found to realize multiple frequency routing based on topological photonic states, which have restricted further applications in the field of nanophotonic devices. Here, for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, we propose an efficient method to realize a topological rainbow based on graded dielectric topological photonic crystals, which are constructed by changing the degree of lattice contraction and expansion. The topological edge states of different frequencies are separated and trapped at different positions. The all-dielectric planar nanostructures of graded topological photonic crystals are low-loss, robust, and easy for integration. This Letter plays a key role in the use of robust nanophotonic wavelength routers, optical storage, and optical buffers.
