Abstract
The motivation to investigate moderate refractive optical polymers in finite 2D photonic crystal waveguides is manyfold. Compared to high index materials like Si, GaAs and InP the optical wavelength inside the waveguide core of a moderate refractive index material is longer and the optical field confinement in most cases is weaker.
