A photonic crystal waveguide (PhC-WG) was reported to be usable as an optical sensor highly sensitive to various material parameters, which can be detected via changes in transmission through the PhC-WG caused by small changes of the refractive index of the medium filling its holes. To monitor these changes accurately, a precise optical model is required, for which the plane wave expansion (PWE) method is convenient. We here demonstrate the revision of the PWE method by employing the complex… CONTINUE READING
