Photonic Crystal Slabs Controlling and Confining Light on the Nanoscale

By Momchil Minkov

In this session, we review the theory behind photonic crystal (PhC) slabs and some of their possible applications. As a practical Tidy3D example, we show how to compute the photonic band structure of a PhC slab and how to simulate an ultra-high-Q, small-volume PhC defect cavity that is also optimized for efficient vertical light extraction.
