Abstract
We propose a compact Terahertz (THz) wave broadband reflector based on the effect of guided mode resonance in photonic crystal slabs. The photonic crystal slabs consist of a square array of circular air holes in silicon. A novel method based on a map of localized bandwidth with defined reflectivity is introduced to analyze the impact of normalized thickness and hole size. The rigorous coupled-wave analysis (RCWA) technique is then applied to analyze its performance. The numerical simulations show that the proposed configuration can offer a broadband frequency range from 2.27THz to 2.89THz with beyond 95% reflectivity.
