Measurements of Localization and Photonic Band Gap Systems in Two-Dimensions
We report the results of experimental investigations of two dimensional periodic and random scattering systems. The systems consist of arrays of dielectric cylindrical scatterers bounded on top and bottom by conducting sheets. We present the results of measurements made on defect modes created by removing part or all of a scatterer from an otherwise perfect lattice. We also present a series of measurements made on localized modes created by randomly removing an increasing number of scatterers. Discussion of applications for photonic band gap structures is included.
