Abstract We present a detailed study of the dispersive medium’s normal coupled modes in a symmetric one-dimensional photonic crystals (1D PCs). The splitting, homogeneous broadening effect, and the detuning effect of the normal coupled modes can be well controlled by adjusting the parameters of the dispersive medium. The bistable behavior of the PCs with Kerr medium is also investigated and it is found that the threshold intensity of nonlinear optical bistability (OB) of 1D PCs with dispersive… CONTINUE READING
