Optical Properties of One-Dimensional Multi-Layered Structures Containing Plasma Materials
The optical properties of electromagnetic (EM) waves propagating in one-dimensional plasma dielectric photonic crystal made of alternate thin layers of two materials namely micro plasma layer and dielectric material layer is studied theoretically. The dispersions both for ω < ωp and ω > ωp are deduced by transfer matrix method and the photonic band gap structure and the reflection spectra are computed. The results show that the band gap structure and reflection spectra are tuned correspondingly due to the dielectric constant of the microplasma layer modified differently in different frequency ranges. Parameter dependence of the effects is calculated and discussed.
