Compact and Integrated Routing Photonic Crystals Structures Design Using the Two-dimensional FDTD Method

Hadjira Badaoui, Mohammed Feham, Mehadji Abri


The goal of this paper is to design and optimize compact Photonic Crystal structure used for routing light. In particular, we focus on the design of a brick that will form the PhCs network, ie a waveguide W1KA and double bends. Photonic crystals are considered a good way for realizing compact optical waveguides and bend. The PhC consists of a triangular array of holes etched into InP/GaInAsP/InP heterostructure. Propagation characteristics of proposed devices are analyzed utilizing two-dimensional finite difference time domain (FDTD) method. The FDTD method will easily perceive the mechanisms involved in these devices. The PhCs transmission properties are then presented and discussed.
