Formulation for electromagnetic scattering and propagation through grating stacks of metallic and dielectric cylinders for photonic crystal calculations. Part II. Properties and implementation.

A numerical implementation and generalized conservation properties of a formulation for calculating wave propagation through stacked gratings comprising metallic and dielectric cylinders are presented. The basic formulation of the method was given in a companion paper [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A. 17, 2165 (2000)]. Here, details of the numerical implementation of… CONTINUE READING
