Abstract

It is found that when a light beam is incident on a one-dimensional photonic crystal (1DPC) containing a defect layer, the lateral shifts of both the reflected and the transmitted beams are greatly enhanced near the defect mode of the 1DPC, whose location depends on the angles at a fixed frequency. The effect was studied by use of a Gaussian beam. The giant lateral displacement is due to the localization of the electromagnetic wave.
