A comprehensive study of the oblique frozen modes in a finite 1-D anisotropic photonic crystal is presented. The most attractive property of these waves is near-zero axial group velocity in conjunction with small reflection from the lattice interface. We use a characteristic matrix analysis to describe both monochromatic wave and pulse propagation in a 1-D anisotropic photonic crystal of finite length. Using a layered structure consisting of air and an example of a suitable material, SbSI, we demonstrate the slow down factor, intensity enhancement, bandwidth, and transmission coefficient of axially frozen modes.
