Paper Abstract

The paper provides the discussion on the application of matrix method for the analysis of planar waveguide structures. The method has been based on the 4x4-matrix technigue. In the paper, we present the method applied for asymmetrical planar waveguide structures of step-index type and for gradient-index waveguides. The equation characteristic for structures ofthat type has been presented as well as expressions for effective refractive indexes of substrate and cover. The paper presents the analysis results of selected structures of planar waveguide sensors obtained with the application of the matrix method.
