Abstract

By extending the concept of a photonic lattice (PL), we have studied the one-dimensional multiphotonic lattice (MPL) composed of a sequence of different types of PL’s. Each PL plays the role of either a well or a barrier for the electric field due to the difference of photonic band gaps. As a result, bound states of the electric field appear near the band edges, which are strikingly reminiscent of electrons or holes in semiconductor quantum wells. This analogy is confirmed by studying the Stark localization of electric field in the MPL composed of alternate stacks of well-like and barrierlike PL’s.
