Extraction of group index of lossy photonic crystal waveguides
MetadataShow full item record
We present a numerical approach to extract group index in photonic crystal (PhC) waveguides using two- and three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain methods and make a quantitative study of the effects of loss on slow light propagation in PhC waveguides. PhC waveguides are simulated with varying material loss and varying PhC waveguide length. Finally, we validate our method by comparing three-dimensional simulation results with experimental results.
