The TM propagation properties of planar 12-fold photonic quasi-crystal patterns are theoretically examined using FDTD. The patterns examined can be produced using a dual beam multiple exposure technique. Simulated transmission plots are shown for various fill factors, dielectric contrast and propagation direction. It is shown that low index waveguides can be produced using the quasi-crystal photonic crystal pattern.
