In this article, transmission spectra of multilayer structure of zinc sulfide (ZnS) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) with defect of magnetized cold plasma (MCP) have been calculated theoretically by using characteristics transfer matrix method. The transmission spectra versus frequency have been analyzed for symmetric and asymmetric structure. Due to have a multiple band gaps in the asymmetric structure, we have taken the asymmetric structure for analysis with the parameters of MCP and the thicknesses of the dielectric materials. It is well known that magnetized cold plasma is an abnormal material because the permittivity changes with applied external magnetic field, and shows tunable photonic band gap for permittivity of the MCP. Now, the transmission spectra of the asymmetric structure versus frequency by inserting one or two magnetized cold plasma layer were analyzed with the variation of incident angles, the parameters of MCP, and the thicknesses of ZnS and TiO2 material. The analyzed transmission spectra of asymmetric structure with the variation of electron density, thicknesses of dielectric materials were obtained better results with defect of two plasma layers as compare to the defect of one layer of plasma. These obtained results reveal that the defect of two magnetized cold plasma layers of one dimensional asymmetric structure of ZnS, TiO2 may be used for the tunable multichannel filter at microwave region.
