Description: 
When a wave impinges obliquely to the interface of a Photonic Crystal (PhC), the wave can be completely reflected in counter-propagating direction instead of the usually expected specular direction. However the beam is totally specularly reflected with a simple modification of the surface termination. The analysis of the time average Poynting vector evidences that PhC termination modifies the energy flow and determines the reflection properties.
