This application computes the band structures and electromagnetic modes of periodic dielectric structures. The program uses fully-vectorial and three-dimensional frequency domain methods. It is designed for the study of photonic crystals. For a more detailed description, please visit: http://ab-initio.mit.edu/wiki/index.php/MIT_Photonic_Bands
