Abstract

We analyze the origin of the fake modes introduced by the plane wave expansion method with three-dimension (3D) supercell approximation. Through the detailed analysis of the energy distribution of fake modes and real modes, we propose the plane wave expansion-three planar-slab waveguides method to remove the fake modes and obtain the fake mode free band structure of a two-dimensional air hole photonic crystal slab. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that such a fake mode free photonic crystal band structure is presented. Our method is also definitely useful in designing other 3D devices.
