Abstract

We report an exceptional enhancement of photon localization effect in a certain one-dimensional random multilayer system. Our simulation with the transfer matrix method predicts and demonstrates that the photon localization effect in a system with weak disorder strength but in a destructive interference resonance region is stronger than that in a completely disordered system. The only reason for this peculiar phenomenon is that the certain weak disorder system confines the resonances between the wave and layers in the destructive interference resonance region.
