Abstract

Photonic media, in which disorder is introduced, are interesting materials for light management. In this paper, we have performed a statistical study of the average light transmission, over the range of wavelengths 450–1400 nm, for two-dimensional photonic structures with different homogeneity (quantified by the Shannon index). The photonic structure is a square lattice of circular pillars and the homogeneity is varied by clustering pillars in the crystal unit cells. We have calculated the light transmission for 50 different crystal realizations (permutating cluster position in the crystal) for each Shannon index value. Such Monte Carlo Markov Chain method produced the “a posteriori” distribution of the light transmission. We have observed a linear trend of the average transmission as a function of the crystal homogeneity. Furthermore, we have found a linear dependence of the average light transmission on the mean distance between pillars in the photonic structures.
