Abstract

The measured, angle-dependent, reflection spectra of a two-dimensional GaAs photonic crystal consist of an asymmetric peak on top of an oscillating background. At large angles of incidence ( > 70 ° ) , the asymmetry of the peak is observed to flip for p-polarized light. We explain the observed spectra with a Fano model that includes loss and interference between a resonant waveguide component and direct Fresnel reflection of the layered structure. We show that the reversal of the asymmetry of the line is due to a change in sign of the direct reflection at Brewster’s angle.
