INFLUENCE OF DISORDER ON A CHIRPED MIRROR BASED ON POROUS SILICON

Abstract:
We report on the modeling of light reflection in disordered chirped mirrors with a photonic band gap in the visible. The stop band limits have a threshold-like behavior as a function of disorder and sustain a certain amount of disorder before changing. We determine the disorder value that leads to a substantial broadening of the total reflection range.
