Abstract  Optical systems offer rich modulation in light propagation, but sufficient quantitative descriptions lack when highly complex structures are considered since practical structures contain defects or imperfections. Here, we utilize a method combining a data-fitting method and a time-resolved system to describe light propagation near the band edges in one-dimensional structures. Calculations after optimization of the method show little deviation to the measurements.
Keywords:  light propagation      band edge      light localization
