Paper Abstract

The modal expansion method is utilized to study the reflection mechanism in the total-internal-reflection (TIR) switch. Due to the confinement of the waveguide, the beam reflection within the TIR switch is completely different from that in the free space. Its essence is the degeneracy between the even and odd modes in the waveguide of the reflection region.
