This chapter proposes complex materials (anisotropic, chiral, Tellegen, and general biisotropic) as element base for Finite Photonic Crystal (FPC) devices, offers an effective method for their handling, illustrates possibilities of their numerical analysis and discusses results for FPC design. The approach is based on the Method of Auxiliary Sources (MAS) and its implementation to complex structures.
