A general coupled-wave theory is presented for the guided resonance in photonic crystal (PhC) slabs with TM-like polarization. Numerical results based on our model are presented with finite-difference time-domain validations. The proposed analysis facilitates comprehensive understanding of the physics of guided resonance in PhC slabs and provides guidance for its applications.
