A novel way of approaching wave propagation in two-dimensional (2-D) photonic crystal guides with finite length is presented. It is shown that the main propagation features can be captured by borrowing simple concepts of propagation in transmission lines and combining them with other concepts taken from the theory of periodic structures.
