Abstract

A numerical approach is presented to analyze the two-dimensional scattering properties from a multilayered periodic dielectric structure of an arbitrary number of arbitrarily shaped unit cells. The approach is enhanced by the periodic moment method, the lattice sums technique, and the Poisson summation formula. The matrix element’s evaluation accounts for the overall coupling between layers. The choosing of lattice parameters allows designs for a wide range of applications, including the electromagnetic bandgap filtering of an E-polarized wave, which is simulated and reported here.
