The control of light propagation through 90° bend coupled cavity waveguide based on two-dimensional photonic crystal using static Jahn-Teller effect was demonstrated. A square photonic crystal of the dielectric rods was considered to specify the parameters of the crystal. It was observed that dielectric constant of the Jahn-Teller cell could be perturbed by optical means or through electro-optical effects. It was suggested to construct a photonic crystal on the piezoelectric substrate giving the needed distortion of the lattice near the defect.
