Modal reflection, transmission and loss of deeply etched Bragg waveguide gratings were modelled by six European laboratories using independently developed two-dimensional (2D) numerical codes based on four different methods, with very good mutual agreement. It was found that (rather weak) material dispersion of the SiO2/Si3N4 system does not significantly affect the results. The existence of lossless Floquet-Bloch modes in deeply etched gratings was confirmed. Based on reliable numerical results, the physical origin of out-of-plane losses of 1D or 2D photonic band gap structures in slab waveguides is briefly discussed.
