Understanding the rich physics of light propagation in slow photonic crystal waveguides
MetadataShow full item record
We study propagation losses in slow light photonic crystal waveguides and show that dispersion engineering can reduce the loss. We develop an improved understanding of why and how this occurs and develop an new approach to modeling these devices that provides new design insights.
