The propagation characteristics of the leaky TE mode in a two-dimensional photonic crystal waveguide is analyzed using the Fourier series expansion method combined with the Chew's perfectly matched layer (PML). The complex propagation constant and mode field profiles are numerically tested in detail. It is shown that the leakage phenomena can be well modeled by choosing the PML parameters in proper range.
