Paper Abstract

A computer code has been developed for simulating light propagation in rectangular multimode waveguides of the type proposed for optical interconnections. Wave solutions are found by combining analytic slab waveguide modes and the Propagating Beam Method. Simulations will be demonstrated of a wide variety of passive optical circuit board devices such as 1-N splitters s-bends cross-throughs tapers and bends. The development of speckle from a coherent source the effect of source linewidth crosstalk and scattering will also be discussed.
