    Square and triangular lattice two-dimensional (2-D) photonic crystals (PC's) composed of lossy dielectric rods in air were constructed with a microwave bandgap between 4-8 GHz. Fabry-Perot resonators of varying length were constructed from two of these PC's of adjustable thickness and reflectivity. The quality factor of cavity modes supported in the resonators was found to increase with increasing PC mirror thickness, but only to a point dictated by the lossiness of the dielectric rods. A 2-D periodic Green's function simulation was found to model the data accurately and quickly using physical parameters obtained in separate measurements. Simple rules are developed for designing optimal resonators in the presence of dielectric loss. © 1999 IEEE.
