Abstract

We introduce a novel analysis technique for predicting thermo-optical sensitivities in photonic crystal (PC) circuits composed of either dielectric–semiconducting or metallic constituents. The proposed numerical analysis is based on a hybrid formalism of the scattering matrix technique combined with the adjoint network method. The proposed computational scheme can, with modest computational resources, predict with high accuracy, the effect of the temperature fluctuations to the light-wave propagation in PCs. Numerical simulations show that PC circuits based on metallic metamaterial platforms are significantly less sensitive to temperature variations than the usual dielectric or semiconducting PCs.
