    Abstract

    To assess the quality of effective index approximations for photonic crystal slabs, we consider a reduction of 2-D problems for waveguide Bragg gratings to 1-D, and compare with rigorous 2-D solutions. A variational procedure permits to establish reasonable effective indices even if locally no guided modes exist.
