This paper describes the optical transmittance and reflection of one dimensional metal-dielectric photonic-band gap material (1D M-D PBG), which is made of different thicknesses ITO and Ag layers. It is found that structures with a unit size below 80 nm and a smaller metal fraction leads to improvement of optical transmittance. For unit sizes larger than 80 nm, the reflection at the shorter and longer wavelengths increases. This is due to the generation of a structural and plasmonic band gap. In addition, the reflection in both ranges increases and broadens by increasing Ag films thicknesses. The reflection spectrum induced by structure shifts towards longer wavelength as a result of unit size increasing and the reflection due to plasmonic band gap piles beyond to optical range. The results are very useful for optical filter of 1D M-D PBG design.
