A computational-modeling study of a 2-D photonic bandgap (PBG) waveguiding structure which could be used to implement such a bandpass wireless interconnect is pressented. Using the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method, the transmission characteristics of a candidate PBG array of metal rods in air for the TM-polarization case is studied. As such, a frequency-independent surface impedance model is used to permit estimation of the PBG stopband characteristics and the transmission losses of the PBG waveguide.
