The results of theoretical and experimental studies of a high-Q cavity based on a cylindrical, periodic lattice are presented. The coupling of localized surface and volume electromagnetic fields results in cavity mode selection over radial, azimuthal, and longitudinal indices and formation of a high-Q cavity eigenmode. Numerical analyses of the field evolution inside the cavity were carried out. Application of these two-dimensional periodic structures in the development of high-power terahertz masers is proposed.
