Abstract:   (4329 Views)
We report the simulation results for impact of nonlinear Kerr effect on band structures of a ‎two dimensional photonic crystal (2D-PhC) with no defect, a PhC based W1-waveguide ‎‎(W1W), and also Coupled-Cavity Waveguides (CCWs). All PhC structres are assumed to a ‎square lattice of constant a made of GaAs rods of radius r=0.2a, in an air background. The ‎numerical simulation was performed using the nonlinear finite difference time domain ‎‎(NFDTD) technique. To study the impact of Kerr effect on the photonic band structures, E-‎polarized lights of peak input intensities 0.5 GW-cm−2≤I≤25 GW-cm−2 have been used. The ‎numerical results have shown that as the input light intensity increases, the band edges for all ‎PhC waveguide structures considered experience red shifts. These numerical results for CCWs ‎also show that the larger the light input intensity, the smaller is the corresponding maximum ‎light group velocity.‎
