We have designed a metallodielectric photonic crystal with planar metallic scatterers to produce high reflectance in both the 3-5 and 8-12 μm atmospheric windows over a wide range of angles of incidence. We have fabricated similar crystals using photolithography with Al scatterers in a polymer dielectric medium and measured their optical transmission, confirming the results of our design simulations. A fabricated filter produced a reflection band with >30 dB rejection and a fractional bandwidth of 0.38. Our results show that it is possible to fabricate infrared photonic crystal filters comparable in performance to those with thick metal elements, but with the ease of manufacture of thin metal layers. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The dielectric properties of single-shell spherical cells with an intrinsic dielectric dispersion have been investigated. By means of the dielectric dispersion spectral representation (DDSR) for the Clausius-Mossotti (CM) factor, we express the dispersion strengths as well as the characteristic...

    Dielectric properties of Bi3.15Nd0.85Ti3O12 films under applied uniaxial stress were investigated. The results showed that the dielectric constant and loss increased with the stress changing from maximum compression (-70 MPa) to maximum tension (+70 MPa). Further studies discovered that the...
