Paper Abstract

We discuss the numerical modeling of integrated optic devices with emphasis on three-dimensional electric field propagation techniques applicable to strongly guiding, longitudinally varying waveguides. We find that despite the inevitable tradeoff between numerical precision and speed, rapid paraxial methods such as the split-operator finite difference procedure are sufficiently accurate for typical rib waveguide problems. We also introduce and solve a new non-paraxial wave equation for electric field propagation. With this formalism we are able to verify explicitly the validity of our Fresnel eauation results.
