    Abstract: In this paper, three photonic crystals (TiO2/SiO2, TiO2/MgF2, TiO2/PbF2) one-dimensional (1D-PhCs) with defect layers are designed for possible use as a thermophotovoltaic optical filter (TPV). The temperature of this system is 2000 K. Wien's first law predicts the temperature and permissible wavelengths for TPV systems. It is therefore very import... Show More
