The purpose of this paper is to theoretically investigate the properties of electromagnetic wave propagating in both one-dimensional periodic and quasiperiodic photonic crystals consisting of high-temperature yttrium barium copper oxide and strontium titanate dielectric nano-scale materials in the ultraviolet wavelength region. By using the transfer matrix method, angle-, polarization- and thickness-dependences of created PBGs are explored individually for periodic and quasiperiodic structures, and some interesting features are presented in the results section. Such supposed structures can be acts as very compact polarization sensitive splitters and defect-free multichannel narrowband tunable filters.
