Optimization of a Photonic Crystal for Signal Filtering
Application ID: 89801
This model builds on the photonic crystal model, where a photonic crystal structure is studied. This structure has a band gap, so only waves within a specific frequency range will propagate through the outlined guide geometry. This model changes the position of the pillars in order to maximize the ratio of the transmission at the desired frequency to the transmission at the undesired frequency.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
