Paper Abstract

It is investigated the optical transmission properties of the Bragg microcavity sandwiched between Bragg reflectors which are composed of alternately arranged different dielectrics with positive and negative refractive indices. The defect layer thickness, incident angle of incident wave, quasi-periodicity of the Bragg reflectors and dispersion of the negative-refractive-index dielectric all have influence on the transmission spectra. Comparison of optical bistable characteristics is presented for the following three nonlinear Bragg microcavities. The first has Bragg reflectors with periodic structure containing non-dispersive negative-refractive-index dielectric; the second has the same structure as the first, however, the negative-refractive index dielectric is dispersive; the third also has periodic structure, however, where the Bragg reflectors are composed of alternately arranged dielectrics with different positive- refractive-indices. It is analyzed influence of the incident angle on the bistability of the nonlinear Bragg microcavity containing non-dispersive dielectrics.
