We theoretically investigate the properties of narrow transmission mode (defect mode) within the reflection band in one-dimensional symmetric defective photonic crystal containing double negative metamaterial and high temperature superconductors. The transmittance spectrum of the proposed structure is obtained by using the characteristic or transfer matrix method. The results show that by increasing the thickness of air defect, transmission mode shifts towards the lower frequency side. But when the thickness of a superconductor layer is increased, transmission mode shifts towards the high frequency side. Further, the effect of temperature variation of superconducting defect on the defect mode has been investigated and found that when the temperature of superconducting layer increases the frequency of defect mode is red shifted. The shift in frequency has smaller value in the lower temperature region than in the higher temperature region, even if the change in temperature is same. Finally we have discussed the effect of variation of thickness on the defect mode by using the double negative metamaterial as defect layer in place of superconductor layer. The result shows that we get two modes for smaller thickness of double negative layer but only a single mode for larger thickness.
