We present an accurate numerical model very useful to design Photonic Band-Gap (PBG) based particle accelerators for cancer hadrontherapy. The approach, based on the Floquet-Bloch theory, allows to investigate without approximations the propagation of a wave inside a periodic structure. Simulations run very quickly providing the geometrical dimensions, the forbidden frequency range, the propagation constants, the total field distribution and the modal losses.

Abstract

We present an accurate numerical model very useful to design Photonic Band-Gap (PBG) based particle accelerators for cancer hadrontherapy. The approach, based on the Floquet-Bloch theory, allows to investigate without approximations the propagation of a wave inside a periodic structure. Simulations run very quickly providing the geometrical dimensions, the forbidden frequency range, the propagation constants, the total field distribution and the modal losses.
