Paper Abstract

For a bilayered, N-period, photonic band gap (PBG) structure produced of anisotropic and isotropic layers, we derive analytic expressions for the tensorial density of modes (DOM) and optical transmittance of the structure as a whole. The computations of the DOM-tensor for different physically realizable PBG structures prove the possibility of considerable enhancement of one normal electromagnetic mode and simultaneous depression of the other one. This effect, which is called polarization selection of modes in anisotropic one-dimensional PBG crystals, enables us to design an effective plane-stratified polarizer working in near-optical frequency range, totally reflecting one normal mode and transmitting the other.
