For simplicity, we assumed both mirrors 1 and 2 are perfect reflectors; each has a reflectivity R and transmittivity T, with R + T = 1.
A zero-order grating of metallic slabs with a 75 [micro]m homogeneously aligned layer of LC in between to exploit tunable wavelength selection properties at microwave frequencies allowed for a high tunability at low voltages but it reduced the transmittivity to 20% or less.
where R and T represent reflectivity and transmittivity. It is evident that for a lossless material,
