In this paper, the optical propagation in the 3-D photonic crystal optical waveguide is simulated numerically using the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method. Since the division number of the domain increases to indicate the structure of the photonic crystal precisely, huge memory is required, and it takes much time to solve the problem. Furthermore, using the micron-order wavelength need much more division number. Therefore, we apply this problem for parallel processing using a PC cluster not only to speed up but also to gather memories in each node
