Paper Abstract

We present a novel method for the analysis of the rectangular MQW waveguide. Preferentially 2D structure is transformed into 1D structure by using the effective index method. Then, the characteristic matrix of the resultant planar MQW waveguide is analyzed by the scanning angle method proposed in this paper. The effective index, modal field intensity, and confinement factor of rectangular MQW waveguide can be effectively obtained by this method. Our simulation results show excellent agreement with the accurate solutions based on the finite element method. We also introduce the approximation methods for the analysis of rectangular MQW waveguide and investigate their validity.
