Abstract


Fourier-Bessel functions are used in a biorthonormal basis expansion of the TE Polarized Maxwell’s equations to numerically model photonic crystals, triangular lattice, and rotationally symmetric quasi-crystals, 12-fold.  The technique provides both the wavelengths and field profile of states supported by the structures.  These results are compared to literature and finite difference time domain simulations.
