Abstract: We explore the effects of random link removal on the photonic band gaps ofhoneycomb networks. Missing or incomplete links are expected to be common inpractical realizations of this class of connected network structures due tounavoidable flaws in the fabrication process. We focus on the collapse of thephotonic band gap due to the defects induced by the link removal. We show thatthe photonic band gap is quite robust against this type of random decimationand survives even when almost 58% of the network links are removed.
