We report the transmission response of generalized Fibonacci photonic crystal Fl(m,n) in microwave domain for normal incidence, where l is the generation number, and m and n are parameters of the Fibonacci distribution. The transmission spectra are calculated through the transfer matrix method and studied by varying the Fibonacci parameters. The structure is exploited to design a microwave mirror with large photonic band gap and polychromatic stop band filters. Therefore, other structure configurations based on the generalized Fibonacci system are proposed. A juxtaposition of p multilayer systems built according to Fibonacci distribution [Fl(m,n)]p makes possible to have switches like property (off-on-off-on-off-on-…). Then, an hybrid structure which is obtained by sandwiching p stacks of generalized Fibonacci photonic crystal between two periodic photonic crystals is proposed to enlarge the photonic band gap in microwave domain.
