Abstract
Fivefold photonic crystal (PC) structure is originally presented with theoretical investigation about its photonic band gap through transmission spectrum calculated by finite-difference time-domain methods. The existence of PC band gap makes it possible for defect structures with high-quality factor. Two types of fivefold PC microcavity are proposed of which the quality factor, normalized frequency, and electromagnetic field profile have been simulated. With some preliminary structural parameters optimization, monopole mode in one-defect fivefold PC microcavity with a high- Q factor ( 2212 ) and whispering gallery mode in six-defect fivefold PC microcavity with a high- Q factor ( 13,300 ) are obtained.
