Abstract

Using near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM), the spatial optical mode structure of a one-dimensional photonic bandgap (PBG) device operating in the near-infrared has been measured for the first time. Clear indication of coupling to the transmitting modes of the PBG is evidenced by the greater penetration as the wavelength is tuned through the band edge. Additional results are suggestive of a spatial map of a defect state.
