Boundary integral calculations of two-dimensional electromagnetic scattering by photonic crystal Fabry-Perot structures


Journal Article

We compute the transmission properties of two-dimensional (2-D) electromagnetic transverse magnetic (TM) waves that are normally incident on a Fabry-Perot structure with mirrors consisting of photonic crystals. We use a boundary integral formulation with quadratic boundary elements and utilize the Ewald representation for Green's functions. We trace the frequencies of the Fabry-Perot cavity modes traversing the photonic bandgap as the cavity length increases and calculate corresponding Q-values.
