Guided modes in a hexagonal periodic graph like domain


This paper deals with the existence of guided waves and edge states in particular two-dimensional media obtained by perturbing a reference periodic medium with honeycomb symmetry. This reference medium is a thin periodic domain (the thickness is denoted δ > 0) with an hexagonal structure, which is close to an honeycomb quantum graph. In a first step, we show the existence of Dirac points (conical crossings) at arbitrarily large frequencies if δ is chosen small enough. We then perturbe the domain by cutting the perfectly periodic medium along the so-called zigzag direction, and we consider either Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions on the cut edge. In the two cases, we prove the existence of edges modes as well as their robustness with respect to some perturbations, namely the location of the cut and the thickness of the perturbed edge. In particular, we show that different locations of the cut lead to almost-non dispersive edge states, the number of locations increasing with the frequency. All the results are obtained via asymptotic analysis and semi-explicit computations done on the limit quantum graph. Numerical simulations illustrate the theoretical results.
