Periodic Band Gap (PGB) Waveguide and Propagation – FDTD Simulation

Inspired by the following video:

Guiding EM waves via periodic structure. The frequency of operation is 11.085 GHz. The relative dielectric permittivity of the square blocks are 11.56 and the ambient medium is air. Each block is 3.5 mm x 3.5 mm.
