Abstract

This letter describes a simple synthetic approach to fabricate two-dimensional midinfrared CdSe photonic crystals (PC) by electrodeposition of CdSe in a polymer template defined using interference lithography. Characterization of the transmission spectra of CdSe PCs with a hexagonal array of 1.3 μm diameter and 2.7 μm pitch air voids showed a well-defined drop in transmission at 4.23 μm. The drop in transmission increased with incident angle, reaching a maximum of approximately 2.6 dB at 40° relative to the surface normal. This two-step synthetic approach can be used to incorporate photonic crystals onto arbitrary substrates for integration into future advanced optical circuits.
