Paper Abstract

A new approach for the analytical calculation of band structures in one-dimensional periodic media, such as photonic crystals and superlattices, is reported based on the recently reported differential transfer matrix method (DTMM). The media analyzed in this paper can have arbitrary profile of refractive index. A closed form dispersion equation is obtained and simplified under different assumptions. Several numerical cases are discussed.
