Abstract

We present a semianalytic theory for the properties of two-dimensional photonic crystal waveguides of finite length. For single-mode guides, the transmission spectrum and field intensity can be accurately described by a simple two-parameter model. Analogies are drawn with Fabry–Perot interferometers, and generalized Fresnel coefficients for the interfaces are calculated.
