Using the transfer matrix method, the effect of temperature on the
transmission spectra of thermal tunable nano metallic photonic crystal filter has been
investigated. Three different materials H (high refractive index material), L (low
refractive index material) and M as a metallic layer, have been used to make this
structure. M layer is considered to be Silver. The complex refractive index of Silver is a
function of temperature and wavelength simultaneously so, the structure is tunable with
temperature and incident angle. It is found that the transmission peaks shift by changing
temperature and incident angle. At a given incident angle, they move toward higher
wavelengths by increasing the temperature. The temperature dependence of
transmission peaks is linear. At a constant temperature, they move toward the shorter
wavelengths by increasing the incident angle. Also by increasing the temperature, due to
