The dispersion relation, density of states, and wave functions of the electromagnetic guided modes of a free standing photonic crystal slab are computed. The solution of Maxwell's equations are obtained from a self-consistent matrix eigenvalue problem solved by a fast computer routine. Comparison is made with experiments on an electrically injected photonic crystal microcavity light source.
