The three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain method is used to obtain loss per unit length in a two-dimensional photonic crystal membrane waveguide by simulating three different length guides. Results are shown for propagation both above and below the light line. The results are compared with a Fourier expansion method and good agreement is obtained above and below the light line.
