Paper Abstract

Adaptive finite elements are the method of choice for accurate simulations of optical components. However as shown recently by Bienstman et al. many finite element mode solvers fail to compute the propagation constant's imaginary part of a leaky waveguide with sufficient accuracy. In this paper we show that with a special goal oriented error estimator for capturing radiation losses this problem is overcome.
