Photonic crystal wave-guides are devices that allow for exceptional tailoring of the properties of light propagation. Currently, the prediction of the properties relies mainly on models for infinite, perfect photonic crystal wave-guides. For photonic crystal circuits scattering matrix approaches have been proposed. In this project we study imperfect photonic crystal wave-guides and circuits of finite lengths with techniques of asymptotic expansion.
