Abstract
Complex photonic bands and strong anisotropic dispersion characteristics of artificially engineered periodic dielectric structures have been widely investigated. In this paper we explore the self-guiding effect possessed by photonic crystals and the possible applications for integrated photonics. Since this approach does not require a full photonic bandgap, low refractive index materials (i.e. glass or organic polymers) are considered as an alternative with advantages over conventional semiconductor materials. Sensitivity analysis reveals how structural variations influence the performance of this type of photonic crystal based system.
