ENHANCEMENT OF OMNIDIRECTIONAL REFLECTION BANDS IN ONE-DIMENSIONAL PHOTONIC CRYSTALS WITH LEFT-HANDED MATERIALS

By S. K. Srivastava and S. P. Ojha

Abstract:
In this paper we show, theoretically, that total omnidirec- tional reflected frequency band is enlarged considerably by using one- dimensional photonic crystal (PC) structure composed of alternate lay- ers of ordinary material (OM) and left handed material (LHM). From the analysis it is found that the proposed structure has very wide range of omnidirectional total frequency bands for both polarizations in com- parison to the normal PC structure, which consists of alternate layers of ordinary material having positive index of refraction. The proposed structure also has an absolute band gap that can be exploited to trap the light.
