# MULTEM 2: A new version of the program for transmission and band-structure calculations of photonic crystals

## Description

Abstract We present a new version of a program for the calculation of the frequency band structure of an infinite photonic crystal, and of the transmission, reflection and absorption coefficients of light by a slab of this crystal. The crystal consists of a stack of identical slices parallel to a given surface; a slice may consist of a number of different components, each of which can be either a homogeneous plate or a multilayer of non-overlapping spherical particles of given periodicity parallel to ... Title of program: MULTEM, version 2 Catalogue Id: ADIM_v2_0 [ADMQ] Nature of problem Calculation of the complex band structure associated with a given surface of a photonic crystal, and of the transmission, reflection and absorption coefficients of light by a slab of the crystal parallel to the given surface. We note that the ordinary frequency band structure of the infinite crystal is contained within the complex band structure of any surface of the crystal.
