Abstract:
This paper presents a proposal of taking the left-handed material as the structural defects of one-dimensional photonic crystals and uses the transfer matrix method to analyze the band-gap of that structure. The simulation result shows that the structure investigated can be considered as a narrow pass band optical filter. By tuning the refractive index of the left-handed material, the ideal transmission rate in the pass band is as higher as 99.99%, while in the band-gap is lower than 0.01%. In addition, we show that the bandwidth can be increased by reducing the cycle number of the photonic crystals.
