A rigorous and simple method is proposed for analyzing guided modes of metallic electromagnetic crystal waveguides. The method is a combination of generalized reflection and transmission matrices and the mode-matching technique. Fast convergence, low computer cost, and high calculating precision are main advantages of the proposed method. This method can easily avoid the relative convergence phenomena than a classical mode-matching method, and the proposed formulation is very suitable to analyzing multilayered problems with very low computer cost. The existence of H-polarized modes in metallic electromagnetic crystal waveguides has been verified.
