ABSTRACT The plane-wave-based transfer matrix method with rational function interpolation and higher-order plane-wave incidence is proposed as an efficient calculation approach to simulate three-dimensional photonic crystal devices. As an example, the dispersion relations and quality factors are calculated for resonant cavity arrays embedded in a woodpile photonic crystal. An interesting ultraslow negative group velocity is observed in this structure.
