Three-dimensional metallic photonic structures are studied using a newly devel-
oped mixed finite element-finite difference (FE-FD) code, Curly3d. The code solves
the vector Helmholtz equation as an eigenvalue problem in the unit cell of a triply
periodic lattice composed of conductors and/or dielectrics. The mixed FE-FD dis-
cretization scheme ensures rapid numerical convergence of the eigenvalue and allows
the code to run at low resolution. Plasmon and photonic band structure calculations

The recent upsurge of interest in the electrodynamics of three-dimensional pe-
riodic structures is due to the realization that composite materials can exhibit
unusual electromagnetic properties. For example, a composite material made
of poles and split ring-resonators can display negative dielectric permittivity
and magnetic permeability for a range of frequencies . Such materials known
