Abstract
The coupling efficiency between external plane waves and the Bloch waves in photonic crystals are investigated. It is found that the coupling coefficient is highly angular dependent even for an interface between air n=1 and a photonic crystal with effective index -1. It is also shown that, for point imaging by a photonic crystal slab owing to the negative refraction, the influence of the surface termination to the transmission and the imaging quality is significant. Finally, we present results demonstrating experimentally negative refraction in a two-dimensional photonic crystal.
