We have recently introduced a novel method to calculate local dispersion relation based on the Finite-Difference Time-domain and filter diagonalization method, which is suitable for local study of dispersion in optical waveguide, especially for the cases of non-periodic, curvilinear, and finite waveguides. In this paper, this approach is applied to study the photonic crystal waveguides at interfaces and double hetero-structure waveguides. We also studied the stretching effect, which is increasing the lateral distance between neighboring rods along guiding direction on band gap. Hybrid modes at interface are results of superposition of existing modes in adjacent waveguides. The results present a clear picture of localization mechanism of cavity modes and the transmission in the double-hetero-structures.
