A model based on the Leaky Mode Propagation Method has been implemented in a computer program to design 1D waveguiding Photonic Band-Gap (PBG) devices. A complete analysis of the propagation characteristics, including the determination of modal propagation constants, electromagnetic field harmonics and total field distribution, transmission and reflection coefficients, total forward and backward power flow in the structure, guided and radiated power, and total losses, can be determined in a few seconds, so enabling the optimized design. The design of a PBG filter and of a resonant device have been carried out to demonstrate the ease of use of our model.
