We theoretically studied electromagnetic wave propagation in a one-dimensional metal/dielectric photonic crystal (1D MDPC) consisting of alternating metallic and dielectric materials by using the transfer matrix method. We performed numerical analyses to investigate the propagation characteristics of a 1D MDPC. We discuss the details of the calculated results in terms of the electron density, the thickness of the metallic layer, different kinds of metals, and the plasma frequency.
