Various periodic plasma structures have been obtained by nonlinear self-organization in dielectric barrier discharge with two water electrodes. The spatio-temporal evolvement of these plasma structures has been studied when changing the discharge parameters. Based on the experimental results, a potential tunable plasma photonic crystal for microwave to THz wave control is suggested. In addition, a special superlattice plasma structure is observed, in which three disparate refractive indexes are modulated periodically.
