The three-dimensional local density of states (LDOS), which determines the radiation dynamics of a point source, is presented here for a finite two-dimensional photonic crystal as a function of space and frequency. The LDOS is obtained from the dyadic Green’s function, which is calculated exactly using the multipole method. Maximum suppression in the LDOS occurs at the high frequency edge of the complete two-dimensional band gap and varies smoothly about this frequency. Macroporous silicon is shown to suppress the LDOS by one order of magnitude at the center of its air pores. © 2003 The American Physical Society.
