Generalized field propagator for arbitrary finite-size photonic band gap structures

We investigate the properties of photonic band gap structures of finite size and arbitrary geometry using the density of states deduced from scattering calculations. We first demonstrate this procedure on a finite 2D array of cylinders and then study at optical frequencies a system formed by a finite array of finite height cylinders positioned on a substrate and illuminated with an evanescent field.
