Abstract

We show that successions of regions with different electrostatic potentials in graphene traversed by obliquely incident electrons can be designed to have the same transmission probability as the transmittance of optical layered structures illuminated with normally incident TE waves. This quantitative analogy holds, although in some cases in a limited range of parameters, despite the difference between the Dirac equation satisfied by the quantum electron wavefunction in graphene and the Helmholtz equation obeyed by the electromagnetic field.
