Photonic microcavity has modified photonic modes that have intense localized electric field, which can couple strongly with the embedded emission centers. In this work, we fabricated 2D photonic microcavities with Penrose quasicrystal pattern with 10-fold symmetry. Organic luminescence material tris(8-hydroxyquinoline) aluminum (Alq3) was embedded into the microcavity and the angle resolved transmission (ART) and photoluminescence (ARPL) spectra of the microcavity were measured. The results showed that the normal Gaussian photoluminescence spectrum of Alq3 has been strongly modified by the microcavity dispersion characteristic. In addition, omni-directional photonic band gap exists in the microcavity. The higher symmetry of Penrose quasicrystal pattern means that there was minimal difference in the directional dispersion characteristics.
