Abstract

In the present work, reflectance properties of one-dimensional photonic crystal (1D PC) containing a metamaterial and high-temperature superconductor have been investigated theoretically and analyzed. The reflectance/transmittance spectrum of the proposed structure is obtained by using the characteristic or transfer-matrix method (TMM). The results show that by increasing the thickness of the metamaterial layer, the width of the second reflection band decreases while the width of the first reflection band remains almost the same though it shifts towards the higher frequency side. In addition to this, a new band gap arises in the lower side of frequency. But, when the thickness of the superconductor layer is increased, the width of both the bands increases and no additional band arises in this case. Moreover, the reflection band is also affected by varying the operating temperature of the superconducting layer and the results show that bands get narrower by increasing the operating temperature. Finally, the effect of incident angle on the reflection band has been discussed for both transverse electric (TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) polarizations.
