Nanostructures of ZnS/Cu/ZnS were deposited on glass substrate using physical vapor deposition technique. The thickness of the first and last ZnS layers was altered, while the thickness of the embedded Cu layer was fixed at 50 nm. The produced nanostructures were of good quality. Spectrophotometric measurements were carried out on the nanostructures to investigate the optical properties. The transmission and reflectivity spectra were recorded and studied in details. ZnS was selected due to its high refractive index, ease of deposition, and low cost. The copper layer was used because of its low absorption in the visible part of the spectrum and its thermal stabil...
