This work investigates the resonant modes of a 12-fold symmetric defect free photonic quasicrystal (PQC) nanorod array using finite difference time domain (FDTD) simulation. Localized modes can exist in PQC without introducing defects due to the lack of translational symmetry. The resonant modes of the unit cell PQC and the one time expanded PQC from unit cell are systematically examined. The resonant spectrum is that of a single rod modified by the interaction among PQC nanorods. The mode confinement is contributed by guided resonance and destructive interference scattering. The self-scaling similarity of resonant spectrum and mode profile are also investigated. (C) 2014 Optical Society of America
