Abstract

The emission and transmission properties of realistic photonic-band-structure woodpile lattices are investigated by use of a scattering-matrix treatment. Lattices with three to nine layers are studied, and the results are interpreted with band-structure calculations for an infinite lattice. Calculations of the total radiative loss rate for a source within the lattice show that these structures can provide significant inhibition of emission, with values as low as 3% of the free-space value in the nine-layer structure.
