Abstract

A theoretical study of optical properties of phase shift defects in one-dimensional asymmetrical photonic structures consisting of two rugate segments with different periodicities at both normal and oblique incidence is presented. Using the propagation matrix method we numerically calculated transmittance spectra, defect wavelengths, energy density distributions, and group velocities for TE and TM waves, respectively. Our study shows that by adjusting the periodicity of one rugate segment, the defect wavelengths can be shifted toward either a shorter wavelength or a longer wavelength. The differences of the energy density distributions of TE and TM waves at different angles of incidence are explained with the help of group velocity. Effects of the change of the period of one rugate segment on the peak energy densities of defect modes and minimum group velocities at different angles of incidence are also investigated.
