Abstract

In this work, we present a theoretical study dealing with the sensitivity to physical parameters such as defect nature and thickness, and temperature. Indeed, the sensitivity considerably enhanced via the use of one-dimensional photonic crystal heterostructure (1D-PCH) which is composed of a few layers of ordinary materials, and superconducting defects. The aim of this paper is to compare the sensitivity of two proposed models consisting of (a) 1D-PCH doped with a high-transition temperature superconductor (Yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO)), and (b) 1D-PCH doped with a low-transition temperature superconductor (niobium nitrure (NbN)). By using the transfer-matrix method (TMM), it has been demonstrated that model (b) is very sensitive compared to model (a). Therefore, the superconducting defect nature on 1D-PCH, using a few layers can play a fundamental role in a very low-temperature sensor.
