In this paper, a simulation study of the slowing optical signals in generalized Cantor structure is proposed. The materials constituting the structure’s layers are SiO2 and the TiO2. The slowing down factor is determined using the transfer matrix method whose purpose is to study the slowing of light. We show that the slowing down factor value depends on the generalized Cantor parameters (a, b and c) and the reference wavelength λ0. These parameters are optimized to better slowing the optical signals, minimize the number and the thickness of structure’s layers. At the end of the paper we compare our results with previous research work.
