An optimal design of Photonic Band-Gap (PBG) based resonance cavities has been carried out and optimal design rules have been drawn by a very fast and accurate computer code, developed by the authors, implementing a new model of one-dimensional finite-size PBG materials. The model also takes into account the presence of defects; it allows to accurately determine the mode propagation constants, electromagnetic harmonics and total field distribution, transmission and reflection coefficients, forward and backward power flow, guided and radiated power and total losses due to radiation, Bragg scattering and out of plane scattering. The design of resonance cavities advancing the state of the art of commercial Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) filters is performed. A great number of optical cavities have been designed and quickly simulated thanks to the fastness of the code, allowing optimal design rules to be drawn.
