This paper presents an efficient simulation algorithm-Scattering matrix method for investigation of the coated finite two-dimensional electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structures. The method is derived to be capable to simulate the band properties of the coated cylinder photonic crystal with wave discontinuities. Numbers of photonic crystals with waveguide discontinuities are examined. The transmission characteristics of the EBG embedded with metal, dielectric, and various coated cylinders are analyzed. The results show that the tuned bandgap properties are able to provide an additional possibility to develop a novel device.
