In this work, we demonstrate via numerical simulation the general design for one dimensional photonic crystal (1D- PC). In the design procedure, the transfer matrix method and Bloch theorem are used to determine the transmission coefficient and dispersion relation of (1D- PC) structure for both TE (transverse electric) and TM (transverse magnetic) modes. Results obtained showing the effect of the filling factor as well as the incident angle on the photonic band gap width. The analysis is carried out using MATLAB software tool. The accuracy of the analysis is tested by comparing the computed results with measurements published data.
