Abstract

A spherical distributed Bragg reflector (SDBR) for near-infrared applications is elaborated via plasma-enhanced chemical-vapor deposition. It consists of the alternating quarter-wave layers of amorphous hydrogenized silicon carbide (a-Si1–xC x : H) and amorphous silicon oxide (a-SiO2) deposited onto a glass microsphere. The reflection spectra of the SDBR are measured at different points of its surface. In all cases, the Bragg-reflection bands, as well as the wavelength range of their overlap, are detected, evidencing the presence of a complete photonic band gap in the SDBR obtained.
