Microwave propagation in two-dimensional dielectric lattices


Journal Article

We have calculated and measured the properties of X-band microwaves propagating in a 2D array of low-loss high-dielectric-constant cylinders. Transmission bands and photonic band gaps are conclusively identified in excellent agreement with the theoretical predictions. Detailed data on the properties of isolated defect states are also presented. We conclude that studies of this model scattering system allow the quantitative evaluation and testing of ideas regarding wave propagation and localization in strongly scattering media. © 1991 The American Physical Society.
