Abstract: A guided mode expansion treatment is presented for theoretical analysis of air-bridge photonic crystal cavity structures. The optimum choice of waveguide refractive index for the basis states is discussed. The method's inherent speed is demonstrated with the optimisation of an L3 defect in a hexagonal lattice of circular holes.
