Description/Abstract

By considering waves that propagate out of the transverse plane, we show that common high index materials (eg GaAs) with a 2D array of air holes can act in some ways like a 3D photonic band-gap structure. In particular, we describe a dielectric "quasi-metal" that reflects all propagating light incident from free space.
