Paper Abstract

A nonlinear stack is one of the handier photonic crystals where new schemes and methodologies can be tested. Nonlinear Stacks have shown the presence of switching, chirping and bistability, but in practice it is hard to find nonlinear material with the adequate physical and mechanical properties. Metallic Nanoparticles are well known to have strong nonlinearities and their composites show the desired nonlinear properties. The nonlinearities are Kerr when described Quantum Mechanically and field amplitude, when described classically. In this report we describe the band gap of such classical composite stack.
