Abstract

Two-dimensional (2D) surface photonic band-gap (SPBG) structures have been suggested to realize 2D distributed feedback. The 2D SPBG structures can be obtained by providing 2D periodic perturbations of the waveguide surface. Such a structure can be used in a wide variety of applications including microwave electronics and integrated optics. The theoretically predicted effect of the transparency of the 2D SPBG structure when distributed Ohmic losses inside the structure are relatively high in comparison with the wave coupling coefficient has been observed in a series of experiments. The results obtained are in good agreement with theoretical predictions.
