This paper addresses the relation between fabrication imperfections and the performance of a photonic crystal coupled resonator optical waveguide (CROW). A semi-analytical model is presented, which calculates the perturbation of the coupling coefficients through their derivatives with respect to geometric characteristics of the rods of the photonic crystal lattice. Once these derivatives are calculated, it becomes possible to estimate the transfer functions of a large number of randomly… CONTINUE READING
