Gap localization of multiple TE‐Modes by arbitrarily weak defects

Brown, B. M., Hoang, V., Plum, M., Radosz, M., Wood, Ian (2020) Gap localization of multiple TE‐Modes by arbitrarily weak defects. Journal of the London Mathematical Society, . ISSN 0024-6107. (doi:10.1112/jlms.12337) (KAR id:81758)


This paper considers the propagation of TE‐modes in photonic crystal waveguides. The waveguide is created by introducing a linear defect into a periodic background medium. Both the periodic background problem and the perturbed problem are modelled by a divergence type equation. A feature of our analysis is that we allow discontinuities in the coefficients of the operator, which is required to model many photonic crystals. Using the Floquet–Bloch theory in negative‐order Sobolev spaces, we characterize the precise number of eigenvalues created by the line defect in terms of the band functions of the original periodic background medium for arbitrarily weak defects.
