We simulate a 1D ternary photonic crystal (TPC) employed as a clad of a photonic crystal waveguide (PCW) which consists three different lossless dielectric layers as a unit-cell. Calculating input impedance at each layer interface and using a lossless reciprocal transmission line as a model, we can predict angle intervals in which reflection occurs due to photonic crystal effect. Comparing this method with transfer matrix method and bang structure shows perfect agreement.
