Abstract:
This paper demonstrates a novel and superior approach to enhance the incident angle based spectrum tuning capability of 1D ternary Photonic Band Gap (PBG) structure. The incidence angle sensitive wavelength band shift of a ternary periodic structure was significantly enhanced when the refractive index of sandwiched layers in each period was changed to 1.5 from 2.04. The ranges of enhancements for TE and TM wavelength band shifts were 0.5-1.5 nm and 5.5-20.5 nm respectively at different angles of incidence of light on the structure. Unlike previous approach, this approach not only enhances the incidence angle based spectrum tuning capability of 1D ternary PBG structure, but, it also ensures that the size of structure does not increase and temperature immunity of the structure does not decrease to enhance spectrum tuning capability.
