On guided electromagnetic waves in photonic crystal waveguides Academic Article uri icon


  • The paper addresses the issue of existence and confinement of electromagnetic modes guided by linear defects in photonic crystals. Sufficient condition are provided for existence of such waves near a given spectral location. Confinement to the guide is achieved due to a photonic band gap in the bulk dielectric medium.
