We present an optical coupling system, which consists of waveguide, cavity and waveguide resonator, to investigate coupled-resonator-induced transparency effect. The transmission properties are analyzed theoretically by using coupled-mode theory in time domain. We also numerically demonstrate the effect by simulating the propagation of electromagnetic waves in photonic crystals by finite-difference time-domain method.
