Paper Abstract

It is not generally known that many modes on certain waveguides used for integrated optics applications are leaky rather than purely bound. Such leakage can result in unwanted cross talk, or form the basis for new types of components. After a brief review of waveguides for integrated optics, the physical mechanism for leakage is described, and it is shown wny the published approximate theories miss such leakage altogether. A summary of which modes leak and which do not, and several numerical examples are presented.
