Experiment and simulation on onedimensional plasma photonic crystals
Abstract
The transmission characteristics of microwaves passing through onedimensional plasma photonic crystals (PPCs) have been investigated by experiment and simulation. The PPCs were formed by a series of discharge tubes filled with argon at 5 Torr that the plasma density in tubes can be varied by adjusting the discharge current. The transmittance of Xband microwaves through the crystal structure was measured under different discharge currents and geometrical parameters. The finitedifferent timedomain method was employed to analyze the detailed properties of the microwaves propagation. The results show that there exist bandgaps when the plasma is turned on. The properties of bandgaps depend on the plasma density and the geometrical parameters of the PPCs structure. The PPCs can perform as dynamical bandstop filter to control the transmission of microwaves within a wide frequency range.

By using modified plane wave method, photonic band structures of the transverse electric polarization for two types of twodimensional magnetized plasma photonic crystals are obtained, and influences of the external magnetic field, plasma density, and dielectric materials on the dispersion curves are studied, respectively. Results show that two areas of flat bands appear in the dispersion curves due to the role of external magnetic field, and the higher frequencies of the up and down flat bands are corresponding to the rightcircled and leftcircled cutoff frequencies, respectively. Adjusting external magnetic field and plasma density can not only control positions of themore »

Omnidirectional photonic band gap enlarged by onedimensional ternary unmagnetized plasma photonic crystals based on a new Fibonacci quasiperiodic structure
In this paper, an omnidirectional photonic band gap realized by onedimensional ternary unmagnetized plasma photonic crystals based on a new Fibonacci quasiperiodic structure, which is composed of homogeneous unmagnetized plasma and two kinds of isotropic dielectric, is theoretically studied by the transfer matrix method. It has been shown that such an omnidirectional photonic band gap originates from Bragg gap in contrast to zeron gap or single negative (negative permittivity or negative permeability) gap, and it is insensitive to the incidence angle and the polarization of electromagnetic wave. From the numerical results, the frequency range and central frequency of omnidirectional photonicmore » 
Photonic band structures of onedimensional photonic crystals doped with plasma
The photonic band structures (PBSs) of oblique incidence propagation in onedimensional plasmadoped photonic crystals (PCs) are investigated carefully. When the lattice constant of plasmadoped PCs is less than the incident wavelength, the PC becomes anisotropic. Therefore, the dielectric constant of PC is converted into a complex tensor dielectric constant. This determines the PBSs of PCs. In the present paper, onedimensional PCs are taken as an example to study both normal and absorption PBSs. Using both the effective medium approximation and the transfer matrix method, we can derive the dispersion relation for PCs. The dependence of the plasma filling factor onmore » 
Photonic band gaps in onedimensional magnetized plasma photonic crystals with arbitrary magnetic declination
In this paper, the properties of photonic band gaps and dispersion relations of onedimensional magnetized plasma photonic crystals composed of dielectric and magnetized plasma layers with arbitrary magnetic declination are theoretically investigated for TM polarized wave based on transfer matrix method. As TM wave propagates in onedimensional magnetized plasma photonic crystals, the electromagnetic wave can be divided into two modes due to the influence of Lorentz force. The equations for effective dielectric functions of such two modes are theoretically deduced, and the transfer matrix equation and dispersion relations for TM wave are calculated. The influences of relative dielectric constant, plasmamore » 
Analysis of photonic band gap in dispersive properties of tunable threedimensional photonic crystals doped by magnetized plasma
In this paper, the magnetooptical effects in dispersive properties for two types of threedimensional magnetized plasma photonic crystals (MPPCs) containing homogeneous dielectric and magnetized plasma with diamond lattices are theoretically investigated for electromagnetic (EM) wave based on plane wave expansion (PWE) method, as incidence EM wave vector is parallel to the external magnetic field. The equations for two types of MPPCs with diamond lattices (dielectric spheres immersed in magnetized plasma background or vice versa) are theoretically deduced. The influences of dielectric constant, plasma collision frequency, filling factor, the external magnetic field, and plasma frequency on the dispersive properties for bothmore »
