A defect-based horn antenna in a two-dimensional photonic crystal was investigated. It was found that it has a large operating bandwidth, low loss, and an operating frequency that was scalable to various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. It was shown that the photonic crystal horn antenna can be used in an array configuration that uses a feed network made from photonic crystal waveguide circuits.
