Abstract

Using analytical modeling and detailed numerical simulations, we investigate the input-output transmission regimes in one-dimensional (1D) nonlinear photonic crystal including array defect layers. A coupled-mode system is derived from the Maxwell equations and analyzed for the stationary-transmission regime in the new proposed structure. Using the idea about introducing defect layers into 1D nonlinear photonic crystals, a new method for creating and controlling optical bistability is proposed. The periodic optical structures with array defect layers can be used as all optical switches between lower- and higher-transmissive states, whereas it possesses one jumping from a low-transmissive state to a transparent state.
