New layer-by-layer photonic crystals were fabricated using standard semiconductor micromachining techniques. Because resistivity of a silicon wafer decreases with the doping concentration, the authors predicted that due to the low resistivity of layers, this structure will show metallic photonic crystal properties, exhibiting a metallicity gap with an upper band edge around 100 GHz, with the new dimensions.
