Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the behavior of guided modes in the optical-range multilayer strip waveguide with different index cross sections which are possible in this structure including the S-shaped refractive index distribution. The strip has the largest index of refraction. Special attention is paid to the case for which there is a "potential barrier" nearby the strip inside the multilayer structure. The layer nearest to the strip has a smaller refractive index which separates the strip from the outside layer. The dispersion and attenuation characteristics of modes are investigated. The S-type strip waveguide may result from increases in the dissipation factor in the outer (from the strip) layer or quasi-single-mode operation with heating losses of higher order unwanted modes.
