A theoretical study is presented for hexagonal lattice metallic pillar photonic crystals in anodic porous alumina with a lattice constant of 500 nm. The objective of the investigation is to design a two-dimensional metallo-dielectric photonic crystal with an anodic porous alumina template. Optical responses are calculated for silver pillars of radii 100 nm, and 200 nm in porous alumina. The nature of their stop bands and attenuation in the near-infrared region is investigated. Calculations reveal that two-dimensional photonic band gaps for the TM polarization exist at visible wavelengths when the radius is 200 nm.

    It is widely believed that a one-dimensional (1D) periodic layered structure with ordinary materials can only have a band gap for certain propagation directions. However, we reveal that a 1D metal-dielectric periodic structure can trap transverse magnetic waves for any angle of propagation in a...

    We have carried out a comparison of relations used to describe the temperature dependence of the width of the band gap in crystals. It is shown that for kT»hω the well-known Varshni relation can be obtained from the non-empirical Fan expression in explicit form taking account of the...

    Gallium sulfide single crystals have been irradiated with different thermal neutron doses. Defects introduced by neutron irradiation turn out to be optically active, giving rise to absorption bands with energies ranging from 1.2 to 3.2 eV. Bands lying in the band-gap exhibit Gaussian shape....
