Paper Abstract

We present a theoretical analysis of propagation losses in photonic crystal waveguides due to fabrication imperfections. The analysis is performed using a Green's function-based technique with the layer Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker method. This approach requires only the calculation of the complex mode behavior of the photonic crystal structure, from which the loss of a given mode is directly deduced. The accuracy and applicability of the method is discussed. The method will be demonstrated using two-dimensional photonic crystals with line-defect waveguides having a single fabrication defect.
