Abstract
The FDTD technique is employed to examine the optical properties of 12-fold rotational order quasi-crystal structures. Bandgap and defect states are shown to exits in the quasi-crystal patterns for in-plane propagating light. Out-of-plane propagation is examined by infinitely extending the planar quasi-crystal in the third direction. The resulting micro-structured optical fiber guides show supported modes confined by index guiding. A stack and draw technique is presented making quasi-crystal core designs possible.
