Hello MPB users, I'm going to simulate a waveguide consisting of a linear defect introduced into a woodpile photonic crystal. I had many doubts about the definiton of the irreducible Brillouin zone, but in the end I found an example that Steven posted here for the case of the perfect crystal which works fine (even if I used as some kind of black box). Now I must introduce the linear defect and other doubts come into my mind for what concerns the projected band structure, and in particular the correct definition of the direction of light propagation (and then the direction of projection of the band structure). Are there any examples concerning this very tricky case? Do you know any references that clearly illustrate this issue? Indeed, it's very difficult to find in the literature a complete projected band structure of a woodpile waveguide (or better, up to now I haven't found it).
