The advent of Internet and of emergent applications what, for instance,TV to high definition, transmission and elaboration to distance of images, above all for applications in medical field, ultrafast connections between supercomputers, require an unprecedented bandwidth in the networks of telecommunications. A new very promising technology for these applications is the Photonic Crystals with forbidden bandgap (Photonic Band-Gap, PBG), which are periodic structures having an interval of wavelengths to inside of which the electromagnetic propagation is forbidden. In this review we have analyzed the photonic crystals using the approach of the leaky mode propagation (LMP) and we have described the principal applications of these structures on PBG.
