Broad Omnidirectional Reflector in the One-Dimensional Ternary Photonic Crystals Containing Superconductor
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 120, 17-34, 2011
Abstract
A method to enlarge the omnidirectional photonic bandgaps (PBGs) has been presented in the one-dimensional photonic crystals by sandwiching a superconductor layer between two dielectric materials to form a one-dimensional ternary periodic structure. The angle- and thickness-dependence of these PBGs have been investigated in detail, and then the thermally-tunability of these omnidirectional PBGs by controlling external temperature of the superconductor is discussed. It is shown that these omnidirectional PBGs can be extended markedly in the one-dimensional ternary photonic crystal and the gap width or the wavelength range can also be tuned by varying external temperature.
