Abstract

We employ 'photonic boron nitride' - a silicon photonic crystal slab composed of a honeycomb lattice of holes - to observe Dirac physics of guided optical modes. The lattice is composed of two component triangular lattices of different hole-size Δr, which breaks the Dirac cone and opens up an observable band gap.
