One-dimensional Periodic Structures with Complete Spectral Gap
Artificial structures with periodically modulated index of refraction such as photonic crystals offer novel ways of controlling light propagation due to the existence of a range of forbidden frequencies corresponding to a photonic bandgap. We discuss physical phenomena which do not allow for the existence of complete electromagnetic band gaps in dielectric structures with variation of the refractive index in one spatial dimension. We also demonstrate that the limitations imposed on...[Show more]
