Finite difference time domain (FDTD) and finite element (FE) frequency domain methods are used to study the propagation of arbitrary chirped pulses in photonic crystal (PhC) waveguide. An arbitrary chirped pulse is derived from a separate Semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) model and is passed through a mini-stop band (MSB) in a photonic crystal waveguide. Good agreement is shown between the FDTD and FE models and pulse compression is observed
