Design of an ODR Mirror by Using Temperature Dependence ZNS Based 1D Photonic Crystals

  • Sanjeev Sharma, Rajesh Kumar Tewari


The effect of temperature and angle of incidence on ZnS based 1D photonic crystal has been investigated. To design of an omnidirectional reflection (ODR) we have proposed a structure which is dependent on both temperature and angle of incidence. Also, the refractive index of ZnS material depends on both temperature and wavelength simultaneously. The ODR range of the structure increases with increases the temperature of the materials. At third transmission window (1550nm), we can design a narrow band omnidirectional mirror by varying the temperature of the semiconductor material.
