A new implementation of bidirectional eigenmode expansion and propagation algorithm for the modeling of three-dimensional waveguide structures is presented. The eigenmodes, which are used for expansion of unknown field, are searched numerically using a full vector finite-difference or finite-element modesolver. The technique is applied to the modeling of high-Q one-dimensional photonic crystal nanocavity and its results are compared with results obtained by three other independent techniques.
