Rectangular Dielectric Waveguides
The properties of lossless rectangular dielectric waveguides will be presented. A review of the relevant analysis techniques will be given. Marcatili’s rectangular harmonic analysis which yields closed form results for many integrated optics applications and the circular harmonic numerical approach will be described. Both dispersion curves and simulations of mode patterns will be presented.
