We investigated the photoluminescence (PL) properties of ZnS:Mn SiO2 one-dimensional photonic-crystal structures. PL spectra were measured from two opposite directions perpendicular to the sample. The cavity mode emission measured from the sample surface showed asymmetric spectral shape; measurements from the back side of the sample showed a symmetric spectral shape. The experimental spectra were analyzed by a simple model calculation based on the transfer matrix method. From the model calculation, it was found that the asymmetric shape observed in cavity mode emission is caused by Fano-type resonance which is the coupling effect between discrete emission from the ZnS:Mn cavity layer and continuous background emission from all ZnS:Mn layers except the cavity layer.
