Calculation of losses in 2-D photonic Crystal membrane waveguides using the 3-D FDTD method

Abstract

The three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain method is used to obtain loss per unit length in a two-dimensional photonic crystal membrane waveguide by simulating three different length guides. Results are shown for propagation both above and below the light line. The results are compared with a Fourier expansion method and good agreement is obtained… (More)
