ABSTRACTWe propose a new three-dimensional photonic crystal structure or drilled alternating-layer photonic crystal (DALPC), which can be fabricated by a combination of the deposition of alternating layers of dielectric films and one-time dry etching. Our band calculation predicts that the DALPC has a photonic band gap (PBG) in all directions. We fabricated a Si/SiO 2 DALPC by electron beam lithography, bias sputtering, and fluoride-gas electron cyclotron resonance etching. We measured the light transmission …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
