In this paper a numerical method, based on the well known Floquet–Bloch theory, useful to analyze the physical properties of a PBG based accelerator, is presented. The proposed model has been developed to analyze a 2D lattice characterized by a generic inclination angle between the two primitive translation vectors, thus resulting very useful when a periodic structure without an equilateral triangular or square cell has to be investigated. The numerical method has been optimized in order to account several number of space harmonics with a low CPU time and memory consumption. Comparisons with more complex numerical methods demonstrate the accuracy of our model. Several simulations have been performed to find all the geometrical parameters including the inclination angle of the unit cell, filling factor and index contrast. The proposed method, through an optimization procedure of the photonic band structure, allows to obtain a large spectral purity, high order mode suppression and high Q–values.
