By utilizing an effective-medium method, the effective dielectric constant and effective magnetic permeability of magnetic photonic crystals at long-wavelength limits were calculated. We also examined the impedance ratio when a long-wavelength electromagnetic wave is incident to a magnetic photonic crystal. In this work, we focus on investigating the impact of the magnetic permeability of rods forming magnetic photonic crystals on the impedance ratio. Furthermore, we analyze the dependencies of the incident angle at impedance match on the magnetic permeability and filling factor of rods.
