Conventional frustrated internal reflection in which light is able to tunnel across a small air gap between two prisms is a well known phenomenon. In this work, an experimental proof-of-concept demonstration of a polarization and highly wavelength selective version of a similar effect via photonic interface states is given. The photonic interface states are designed to exist within the photonic band gap of Bragg reflectors on the surfaces of the two prisms.
