Abstract: We propose a scattering matrix approach to the modeling of large-scale photonic crystal circuits and show that the transmission properties of complex circuits can be accurately calculated on the basis of scattering matrices of individual photonic crystal devices and waveguides that connect them. In addition, we show that functional devices such as waveguide bends generally exhibit a discontinuous frequency dependence in the phases associated with their complex reflection and transmission coefficients and emphasize its importance for the adequate modeling of photonic crystal circuits.
