    Theoretical calculations via a transfer matrix method (TMM) were performed to investigate the possibility of fullerene/AlN multilayer films acting as one-dimensional (1D) photonic band gap (PBG) crystals. The response within and out of the periodic plane of (C 60, C 70)/AlN multilayers was studied. (C 60, C 70)/AlN multilayer films presented incomplete PBG behavior in UV region. C 60/AlN multilayers with two pairs of 49 nm-C 60 and 21 nm-AlN layers exhibited a high reflectivity of 90.4% at a wavelength of about 200 nm. As a consequence, this photonic crystal may be important for achieving materials with an incomplete band gap in the UV region.
