Abstract

Three methods for the efficient simulation of two-dimensional photonic crystal structures are compared, namely, a semianalytical multiple-scattering technique; a vectorial eigenmode expansion technique; and a FDTD-ROM technique. The basic principles of each method are presented. For the semianalytical technique and for the vectorial eigenmode expansion technique, we show how reflections coming from abruptly terminated waveguides can be avoided. The main advantages and disadvantages of each method are discussed. Results from use of the three methods are compared for several photonic crystal structures.
