Abstract

Omnidirectional total reflection (ODTR) has a wide variety of applications, such as in optical communication, electromagnetic energy transportation, and solar energy engineering. We propose a type of photonic structure made of dielectric and magnetic 1D photonic crystals (PCs). Simulations by the optical transmission matrix method demonstrate that such structures can achieve ODTR in a wide wavelength range. In such structures, the total reflections of the s-polarization part and p-polarization part of the incident wave are caused by the 1D dielectric sub-PC and the 1D magnetic sub-PC, respectively.
