Using Bloch waves to represent the full solution of the Maxwell equations inperiodic media, we study the limit process where the material's period becomes much smaller than the wavelenght. it is seen that effective material parameters can be extracted and explicity represented in terms of the non-vanishing Bloch waves, providing an alternative means of homogenization.
