Abstract

The photonic band structure in the transversal electric mode for a one-dimensional superconductor-dielectric superlattice is theoretically calculated. By using the Abeles theory for a stratified medium, we first calculate the transmittance spectrum from which all the possible bands can be directly seen. Then we calculate the real photonic band structure based on the transcendental equation derived from the transfer matrix method and Bloch theorem. The band structure is shown to be strongly consistent with the transmittance spectrum. We finally study the three lowest band gaps as a function of penetration of superconductor, permittivity of dielectric, and angle of incidence, respectively. The optical properties in a superconductor- dielectric superlattice thus are well disclosed.
