Nature of problem:
Calculation of the complex band structure associated with a given surface of a photonic crystal, and of the transmission, reflection and absorption coefficients of light by a slab of the crystal parallel to the given surface. We note that the ordinary frequency band structure of the infinite crystal is contained within the complex band structure of any surface of the crystal.
Solution of Maxwell's equations using multiple-scattering techniques.
Summary of revisions:
The structures that can be considered consist of parallel planes of non-overlapping spheres of given two-dimensional periodicity and uniform plates.
For the same problem (test run in Ref. ) the time required on an HP 9000/778/B180L workstation by the present version is about 1.5s (2.4s) per frequency for the band-structure (transmission) calculation, instead of 20.3s (49.6s) required by the previous version. The input and results are the same and are not reproduced here.
