The effects of disorder in the geometry and refractive index on the transmittance of two-dimensional photonic crystals composed of dielectric circular cylinders are considered, including randomness of radii, positions of the cylinder centers, and thickness of each layer of the photonic crystal. The effects of combinations of different types of strong disorder are also considered. The localization and homogenization properties of disordered photonic crystals are investigated.
