Abstract

Angular-dependent reflection measurements were used to map out the dispersion relations of the resonant Bloch modes, and the angular dispersion of the phonon modes, in a photonic crystal consisting of selectively grown GaN pyramids containing a single InxGa1-xN/GaN quantum well. The dispersion of the photons exhibits strong photonic crystal characteristics, while the mean indium content of the 2 nm thickness InxGa1-xN layer was extracted from the angular dispersion of the phonon modes.
