Photonic crystal antenna, horn antenna, coupler


We propose a pair of photonic crystal horn antennas as an efficient and convenient means for coupling electromagnetic radiation between two photonic crystal circuits. We show that on average these configurations operate efficiently with low loss, and tolerant to alignment errors. This proposed arrangement requires the photonic crystal horn antennas to couple in the near field regime and we provide a characterization of photonic crystal horn antennas in the near field for this analysis.
