SbSI based photonic crystal superlattices: band structure and optics
In this work, we present an investigation of the optical properties and band structure calculations for the photonic crystal structures (PCs) based on one-dimensional (1D)-photonic crystal. Here we use 1D SbSI based layers in air background. We have theoretically calculated the photonic band structure and optical properties of SbSI based PC superlattices. In our simulation, we employed the finite-difference time domain (FDTD) technique and the plane wave expansion method (PWE), which implies the solution of Maxwell equations with centered finite-difference expressions for the space and time derivatives.
