Optical forces and optical torques on various materials arising from optical lattices in the Lorentz-Mie regime
By combining the Maxwell stress tensor with the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method, we calculate the optical force and optical torque on particles from optical lattices. We compare our method to the two-component ...
Photonic density of states of two-dimensional quasicrystalline photonic structures
A large photonic band gap (PBG) is highly favorable for photonic crystal devices. One of the most important goals of PBG materials research is identifying structural design strategies for maximizing the gap size. We provide ...
Impact of Geometry on the TM Photonic Band Gaps of Photonic Crystals and Quasicrystals
Here we demonstrate a novel quantitative procedure to pursue statistical studies on the geometric properties of photonic crystals and photonic quasicrystals (PQCs) which consist of separate dielectric particles. The geometric ...
Two-pattern compound photonic crystals with a large complete photonic band gap
We present a set of two-dimensional aperiodic structures with a large complete photonic band gap (PBG), which are named two-pattern photonic crystals. By superposing two substructures without regard to registration, we ...
