Abstract

Surface Bloch modes induced on three-dimensional dielectric photonic crystals with a complete photonic bandgap are evanescently decaying states at surfaces and have large field overlap with low-index media, resulting in narrow spectrum linewidth and simultaneously a large resonance shift due to a perturbation of the refractive index in the background media. Surface Bloch resonance states are analyzed for ( 001 ) , ( 100 ) , and ( 110 ) woodpile surface planes. Low-loss, high-sensitivity surface Bloch modes are also analyzed on a flat-top ( 001 ) woodpile planar surface. These analyzed surface Bloch modes are confined in a subwavelength scale and are expected to form a basis set used for optical resonance sensing.
