Properties of defect modes in two-dimensional organic octagonal quasicrystals at low dielectric contrast
We study theoretically the localization and coupling properties of defect modes in octagonal quasi-crystals made of conjugated polymers for the light modulation of organic light-emitting devices (OLED) and organic lasers. Due to the rotational symmetry of quasicrystals and the low refractive-index of organic semiconductors, it is observed that localized modes only occur in the complex defect-cavity structures. Unlike conventional photonic crystals with high-index, some unusual characteristics of defect modes coupling in quasicrystals under the low-index contrast are revealed and analyzed, such as the loss of defect modes, composite resonant cavity, and phase-opposition of modal tails. These results will allow us to better utilize the light control in organic photonic crystal microcavity lasers, especially in the localization region, and further to apply in OLED and VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) fields.
