Abstract
The results of our analytical study on the formation of optical bands of III-Nitride Photonic Crystals are presented in this paper. The analysis is based on the propagation of Bloch waves through microstructured periodic dielectric materials, taking a model of 2D holey crystal of square lattice of GaN as example. Band gaps are opened up for both TE and TM modes in the square lattice for different d/a ratios, 'd' and 'a' being the diameter and lattice constant. The transmission bandwidth is seen to be wider for decreasing air -hole diameter irrespective of the polarization mode of the propagating light. Complete photonic gap may be found for material system of relatively higher contrast ratio.
