We investigate a complex cavity composed of three simple cavities, which are formed by three simple defects in a one-dimensional photonic crystal (PC), by the optical transmission method. We set two of the simple cavities to be the same, and let the cavity-length of the third one vary. Generally, two or more narrow resonant transmission modes emerge in the bandgap region; the position of one of them is basically fixed with different fine structures, in which exists a fixed crest, while the other modes wander in the bandgap region as the cavity-length of the third cavity varies. We find the optimized the relative coupling length being 0.447 for the complex cavity. Introducing the parameter - degree of rectangularity, we find that the complex PC cavity is much more close to an ideal narrow band-pass filter than a simple PC defect cavity. It is surprising that the degree of rectangularity is insensitive to the number of periods in the structures.
