A two-dimensional scattering of a plane wave from a periodic array of dielectric cylinders with arbitrary shape using the multigrid-moment method is examined. The scattered field is expressed in terms of the integral form by an infinite summation of the surface integral over the cross section of the reference cylinder. The integral form is converted into the matrix equation by using the moment method. The integration in the elements of the matrix equation is evaluated by the lattice-sums technique to obtain a precise solution. The multigrid method is applied to the matrix equation to improve the CPU time. The CPU time and the residual norm are examined numerically for a given number of iterations and cycle indices. Then the effects of shape and material of the periodic structure on the power reflection coefficient of the fundamental Floquet mode are shown. In addition, the results indicate the effect of changing the relative permittivity of the dielectric coated body and the reflection coefficient.
