Multilayer photonic crystal structures with bleaching layers are being investigated. In order to calculate the characteristics of ultra-wideband filters on their basis, T-lines lossless model was used. Amplitude-frequency characteristics for the synthesized filters of 5th, 11th and 17th orders are given. It is proved that by a significant increase in filter N order, the difference between the connection coefficients of central resonators' layers' becomes negligible. This makes it possible to develop 27-order filter, in which almost half of the layers are realized by periodic interchange of only two identical high-contrast materials. The investigated band-pass filters, including the ones on a glass substrate, have high frequency-selective properties at a relative bandwidth of 80%.
