Paper Abstract

We present the analysis of a semi-leaky waveguide with the help of 3 different methods. Since the resulting numerical values still show some differences, the validity of these methods is discussed. Both theoretical and experimental studies of a semi-leaky waveguide show a maximum of the losses for an index of the superstate slightly greater than the index of the waveguide. We finally apply these results to design and characterize a polarizer based on the deposition of an anisotropic layer on an otherwise lossless waveguide.
