Paper Abstract

Based on the Galerkin's method, a numerical method is developed to analysis the cutoff frequencies of guided modes of optical waveguides with arbitrary refractive index profile. Solutions are presented in the quasi-vector regime. Optical waveguide structures with single core of arbitrary shape are considered in this paper. The calculated results are compared favorably with exact vector solution and circular-harmonic expansion method.
