Abstract We demonstrate a two-dimensional photonic crystal made of PECVD silicon carbide (SiC) at near-infrared wavelengths. Although the refractive index of SiC is lower than that of a conventional semiconductor such as GaAs or Si, we show that photonic crystals based sensors can be obtained in PECVD SiC. We fabricated photonic crystals experimentally having bandgaps of 200 nm, and estimated their sensitivity to 210 nm/Refractive Index Unit.
