Abstract

A method for studying photon tunneling in uniaxial crystal films is presented. The complex refractive index and the complex angle of refraction of the evanescent wave in a crystal are calculated for the most general case. The reflectance and transmittance resulting from the tunneling effect in crystal films are discussed, and the relations among these coefficients and the optical parameters of crystal are found. These relations provide a theoretical basis for characterizing crystal films by means of photon tunneling.
