Abstract

The insertion of a structurally chiral layer defect between two identical chiral mirrors, made of periodic structurally chiral materials such as chiral liquid crystals and chiral sculptured thin films, generates two different types of spectral holes, depending on the thicknesses of the chiral mirrors and the central layer defect.
