Abstract

We have analytically studied uniaxial, birefringent, one-dimensional multilayer structures and found that in such structures birefringence leads to an interesting phenomenon of omnidirectional transmission. In particular, we have demonstrated analytically that the bigger the birefringence in the layers is, the better the omnidirectional transmission is. We demonstrated this property for all kinds of multilayers with absorption and dispersion.
