Abstract

We present an analytical method for TE and TM modes in weakly guiding inhomogeneous single-mode slab waveguides. Based on our results, the modal behavior or propagation constants depend on index profiles of the waveguides. It is important to know how the modal behavior depends on the index profile in single-mode waveguides, because it determines wave-front characteristics of propagating modes.
