Abstract:
In this paper, we use the Bloch theorem and transfer matrix method to calculate the dispersion relation of a ternary 1D photonic crystal with left-handed materials. Then, we obtain the total omnidirectional reflection band gaps of this structure. We demonstrate that the omnidirectional reflected frequency bands are enlarged in comparison with ordinary materials with positive index of refraction.
