Photonic crystals (PC) are a promising platform for realizing compact all-optical switches operating at very low power and integrated on an optical integrated circuit. Photonic crystals prepared from a highly nonlinear chalcogenide material appears to be a promising architecture for confining and guiding light at the wavelength scale, where the Kerr nonlinearity and photo sensitivity of the material can be exploited to achieve a new range of compact integrated devices. The present paper examines the theoretical work relating to the Chalcogenide PhC when the layers are tailored by defects to generate localized modes. The work is particularly useful in the design and development of photonic devices.
