Abstract
We introduce a general design procedure of creating a linear defect in any photonic crystal slabs that functioned as a waveguide. This involves embedding a dielectric block waveguide into a photonic crysatl slab such that the group velocity dispersion relation is phase matched with the bandgap of the crystal. A specific scheme of integration is required to remove any edge states within the guiding bandwidth. Such methodology allows a systematic tuning of waveguide properties such that it can be non-dispersive, and possesses wide bandwidth that contains only a single mode band. As a support of our argument, we demonstrate a particualr waveguide design that is single mode with essentially no group velocity dispersion, and possesses a bandwidth of 13% of the center band frequency.
