Consider the dielectric slab waveguide1 of thickness t illustrated in Fig. 1. The waveguide is assumed to be infinitely thick in the y dimension, therefore, ∂/∂y = 0. For TE modes the longitudinal components of the electric field Ez vanishes. Substitution of Ez = 0 and ∂/∂y = 0 into Equations 67 and 68 of Chapter I relating the transverse and longitudinal components results in the following field equations.
