Analysis of Bi-anisotropic PBG Structure Using Plane Wave Expansion Method

L. G. Zheng, W. X. Zhang
2003 Electromagnetic Waves  
An algebraic eigenvalue problem for analyzing the propagation characteristics of electromagnetic waves inside the PBG Structure consisting of complex medium is established by using Bloch theorem and plane wave expansion. Two eigen-solvers are employed. One is matrix-based and another is iterative. Calculated results show that both methods are effective for 2-D PBG structure, but the iterative eigen-solver is more attractive in both CPU-time and memory requirement. A sample of 2-D PBG structure,
