A fractal multilayer structure made of two dielectric materials can exhibit photonic bandgap (PBG). In this work, with the use of this PBG, we study the transmission properties of periodic triadic Cantor set structures. The results indicate that the structure can be used to design multichannel filters with channel number equal to N - 1 for a given number of periods, N. In addition, the channel frequencies can be designed at will. The considered structure provides another new type of design for a tunable multichannel filter.
