A model of one-dimensional (1-D) waveguiding photonic bandgap (PBG) structures, based on leaky mode propagation (LMP) method, is proposed for the first time. A complete analysis of the propagation characteristics,including the determination of modal propagation constants, electromagnetic field harmonics and total field distribution, transmission and reflection coefficients, total forward and backward power flow in the structure, guided and radiated power, and total losses, has been carried out for a finite extension configuration. The numerical results have been compared with those obtained by using other methods, showing a very good agreement together with some significant advantages in terms of very low computational time, absence of any a priori theoretical assumptions and approximations, capability of simulating the actual behavior of the device as a reflector, and fast determination of the bandgap position.
