Abstract

The propagation of electromagnetic radiation in superlattice structures is considered. We present calculations of tunneling transmissivities for photons through GaAs–AlGaAs superlattice structures. Resonant tunneling (i.e., 100% transmissivity) occurs at incidence with wave numbers near the quasi-guided modes of the structure.
