The FDTD method is used to study chirped pulse propagation in photonic crystal waveguides. In particular the carrier wavelength of the pulse is swept across the bandwidth of a mini-stopband feature and interesting, nonstandard pulse compression behaviour is observed. To further study this, increased frequency resolution across the MSB feature is used and the pulse width is varied.
