The bending and guiding of the electromagnetic (EM) waves in highly confined waveguides was demonstrated. The electromagnetic waves were constructed by removing a single rod from a perfect three layer-by-layer photonic crystals. A layer-by-layer dielectric photonic crystal based on square shaped alumina rods was used with center-to-center separation of 1.12 cm. The results suggested the use of the layer-by-layer photonic crystal structure in the design of optoelectronic integrated circuits.
