Jyothi Digge, Santosh .K.Narayankhedkar . Novel Design of Photonic Crystal Devices for Optical Networks. International Conference and Workshop on Emerging Trends in Technology. ICWET2012, 6 (March 2012), 25-30.
In this paper, we carry out the study of two-dimensional photonic -crystal based devices. The devices discussed here include simple waveguide arrays, bent waveguide, 1x2 Y splitter and demultiplexer. The coupling properties are investigated using coupled mode theory. One straightforward application of such analysis is the coupling of power launched into the channel to the side waveguides. As a result, the appropriate design of Photonic crystal waveguide arrays (PCWA) may permit the realization of efficient, compact and novel waveguides, power divider and demultiplexer.
