Abstract

We investigate the physics of spontaneous emission in a photonic crystal (PhC) made of GaN rods with embedded InGaN quantum wells, formed on a thick GaN layer. Although the PhC lies on a higherindex medium, we evidence the existence of unexpected quasi-guided Bloch modes which are strongly localized in the PhC region and possess a long lifetime. These modes determine the behavior of spontaneous emission such as the emission diagram and Purcell effect, as would happen in the usual case of emission in a PhC membrane.
