CALCULATION OF TRANSMISSION SPECTRA OF APERIODIC PHOTONIC CRYSTALS

Print ISSN: 0972-7752

Abstract

In recent years, photonic quasicrystals (PQs) with aperiodic structures have attracted many interests for their amusing photonic band gap (PBG) properties analogical to those of periodic photonic crystals. The diversity of the PBGs of PQs is magnetic both theoretically and experimentally for potential applications in novel optical and optoelectronic devices. Among various PQs, the properties of one-dimensional PQs could be simulated more precisely. One-dimensional PQs, including Fibonacci and Thue- Morse (TM) sequences have been constructed experimentally. Here, the transmission spectra of aperiodic photonic crystals are calculated by transfer matrix method in order to discuss the PBG.
