Abstract

Photonics crystal waveguide (PhCW), as a promising tool for realizing photonic integrated chip, can provide remarkable confinements of light field. In this report, we show that real PhCWs (i.e. PhCWs with fabrication imperfections left by state of the art fabrication facilities) without any intentional disorder support highly-confined localization states with a spatial extent comparable to that achieved with engineered micro-cavities [1]-[2].
