Abstract:
The effect of graded permittivity profiles, filling factor and incident angles on the dispersion characteristics and reflectivity of binary one dimensional plasma photonic crystals having linearly graded dielectric materials are investigated by using the transfer matrix method. It is observed that position, width of band gap and high reflectance range can be improvised to desired level by proper choice of filling factor and graded permittivity index. The incident angle is found to affect the band gap and high reflectance range. Our analysis also shows that this plasma photonic crystal may be used for sensing applications.
