Abstract

The group index dispersion and birefringence of guided modes supported by straight photonic crystal (PhC) waveguides are theoretically and experimentally investigated as a function of the waveguide width within various reduced frequency domains. Within the photonic gap and far from the Brillouin zone edges, strongly confined modes supported by narrow PhC guides exhibit both a group index and a birefringence larger than those of a deep ridge. These two results evidence the contribution of the photonic gap to the guiding mechanism in the refractivelike domain.
