Photonic Bands and Scattering for Stacks of Lossy, Dispersive Cylinders
We have developed an original method to investigate stacks of gratings, consisting of dielectric or metallic, circular cylinders. The accuracy of the method is not affected by the high contrast between the cylinders and the surrounding medium. Also, our formulation enable us to find the edges of the band gaps in photonic band diagrams.
