The Fabry–Perot resonance technique has been used to determine the propagation losses of planar photonic crystal (PC) waveguides. The structures are patterned into a GaInAsP confining layer on an InP substrate. Losses as low as 11 dB/mm have been measured on a guiding structure with three missing rows. The influence of the PC guide width and air-filling factor is demonstrated.
