The object of the paper is the processes of polarized light waves propagation in photonic crystal structures with regularly arranged elements, in particular in those with space periodicity. The polarization characteristics of photonic-crystal-based waveguides to control the light flow have been studied, and an agreement with an experiment has been obtained. The results obtained in this work can be implemented to study the interaction of waves with two-dimensional photonic crystals, which in turn will serve for developing waveguide contours with enhanced level of optical integration.
