We apply the expanded basis method (EBM) to investigate the behavior of light in a two-dimensional photonic crystal (PC) slab. This method is based on expanded completeness bases, including both the propagation and evanescence modes. We calculate the reflected and transmitted coefficients and the corresponding field distributions in the case of multiple mode transportation. We also show the related phases which exhibit oscillations with the frequency of the incident light.
