FIG. 1.

(a) A schematic of the strip waveguide to high- photonic crystal waveguide coupling structure. The PCW on the right side of the interface is assumed to support high- propagation at the wavelength of operation. (b) Group index vs wavelength for infinitely long PCW with different defect line widths, . The inset shows band structure for W1 PCW, , slab , , and . The highlighted (green) section is the bandwidth over which .
