In this work we investigate the existence of an one-dimensional Porous Silicon (PS) based structure possesing simultaneously Photonic and Phononic Band Gaps at the same reduced frequency. We present rigorous electrodynamic and elastodynamics calculations of the eigenvalues of the wave equations for electromagnetic and longitudinal (transverse) mechanical vibrations. The PS structure is identified as a PhoXonic structure exhibiting ranges of forbidden frequencies for visible light and hypersound.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
