Paper Abstract

A novel spectral method, which combines the advantages of two proven techniques, namely the spectral index and free space radiation mode methods, is presented for the analysis f a mode spot converter with air clad boundaries. The approach is very efficient and accurate, giving propagation constants and field profiles in a matter of seconds. Design curves and field profiles which can be used to optimize the spot converter are also given.
