Comprehensive FDTD modelling of photonic crystal waveguide components



Comprehensive FDTD modelling of photonic crystal waveguide components



Optics Express 12(2): 234-248



Planar photonic crystal waveguide structures have been modelled using the finite-difference-time-domain method and perfectly matched layers have been employed as boundary conditions. Comprehensive numerical calculations have been performed and compared to experimentally obtained transmission spectra for various photonic crystal waveguides. It is found that within the experimental fabrication tolerances the calculations correctly predict the measured transmission levels and other major transmission features.
