We present a fast and efficient full vectorial modeling method for photonic crystal devices. This method is based on eigenmode expansion in z-invariant layers and is much less brute force than e.g. the standard finite-difference time-domain method. It is well suited for a large variety of structures, including infinite, semi-infinite and finite structures.
