    Abstract

    The photonic band gap properties of nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide structures are numerically investigated. These structures consist of a self-arranged triangular lattice of holes in an aluminum oxide dielectric host and are produced by electrochemical etching under adequate conditions. The triangular order of these structures is however broken into domains of some tens of pores oriented in different lattice directions. By analogy with the photonic quasicrystals, which show photonic band gap properties due to their n-fold rotational symmetry, the nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide may also exhibit such properties. In this work we investigate the existence of photonic stop bands in these quasi-ordered structures by calculating their transmittance by means of a Finite-Difference Time-Domain method.
