The influence of an applied static magnetic field on a periodic structure composed of alternating layers of double positive index of refraction (DPS) uniaxial and double negative index of refraction (DNG) has been studied. We present theoretical and numerical results of our investigation of the reflection spectra of the visible waves on this structure. This structure works as a bandpass filter, and our evaluation indicates this structure functions as a tunable optical bandpass filter. The bandgap effect varies with the periodic parameters of the DPS–DNG structure, applied magnetic field, incidence angle, and frequency.
