We introduce a new method allowing rigorous electromagnetic analysis of scattering through photonic crystals comprising polygonal or round rods. For this purpose, we reformulate the C method with adaptive spatial resolution by utilizing the hybrid-spectrum connection method, permitting the use of nonidentical trapezoidal profiles. Considering polygonal rods as gratings consisting of different piecewise-differentiable surfaces, we are able to analyze the reflection and the transmittance of crystals by means of the C method. To enhance computational efficiency, we apply the recursive S-matrix approach with Redheffer’s star product to solve the transfer matrix for structures of numerous successive layers of rods.
