An algorithm which allows the analysis of optical periodic structures with a very large number of periods with minimum numerical problems is presented. For this purpose the stable impedance transfer is combined with Floquet's theorem. Numerical results for a Bragg grating with up to 20000 periods are presented featuring the very moderate numerical effort.
