Local Normal Mode Coupling and Energy Band Splitting in Elliptically Birefringent 1 D Magnetophotonic Crystals

  title={Local Normal Mode Coupling and Energy Band Splitting in Elliptically Birefringent 1 D Magnetophotonic Crystals},
  author={Amir A Jalali and Miguel Levy},
An analysis is presented of wave-vector dispersion in elliptically birefringent stratified magneto-optic media having one-dimensional periodicity. It is found that local normal-mode polarization-state differences between adjacent layers lead to mode coupling and impact the wave-vector dispersion and the character of the Bloch states of the system. This coupling produces extra terms in the dispersion relation not present in uniform circularly birefringent magneto-optic stratified media. Normal… CONTINUE READING
