Photonic heterostructures with Lévy-type disorder: Statistics of coherent transmission
Resumen: We study the electromagnetic transmission T through one-dimensional (1D) photonic heterostructures whose random layer thicknesses follow a long-tailed Lévy-type distribution. Based on recent predictions made for 1D coherent transport with Lévy-type disorder, we show numerically that for a system of length L (i) the average ¿-lnT¿¿La for 0<a<1, while ¿-lnT¿¿L for 1¿a<2, a being the exponent of the power-law decay of the layer-thickness probability distribution, and (ii) the transmission distribution P(T) is independent of the angle of incidence and the frequency of the electromagnetic wave, but it is fully determined by the values of a and ¿lnT¿. Additionally we have found and numerically verified that ¿T¿¿L-a with 0<a<1.
