Paper Abstract

In this presentation, a simple patchwork to the classical mode matching method (MMM) is proposed to analyze rib ARROWs. MMM gives the modal effective index and the lateral part of modal power loss, and the total modal loss is obtained by including the vertical part which is estimated by a simple yet physical method described here. The simplified MMM (SMMM) is also presented to analyze the effect of TE-TM couplings. Simulation results of selected rib ARROW structures are discussed and compared with those obtained by the Effective Index Method (EIM).
