High optical confinement of 1.55 ,um light is shown in a 5 Am sized high-index-contrast pseudo-random distribution of dielectric rods. This structure, designed using Evolutionary Algorithms, utilizes Anderson Localization to achieve confinement. OCIS codes: (230.5750) Resonators; (030.0030)Coherence and statistical optics In random media, when the separation distance between high-index contrast scattering sites is on the order of the
