Paper Abstract

Finite element solutions of the planar nonlinear optical waveguide are presented by incorporating a simple iteration scheme. Both film guided and surface guided modes are presented for symmetrical and nonsymmetrical structures. Bistability and hysteresis nature of the modes for these structures are also illustrated. This technique can be readily applied to a wide range of optical waveguide devices, including 2-D structures, with arbitrary nonlinearity and transverse index profile.
