Abstract

Group velocity dispersion is calculated in weakly guiding slab guides having depressed index layer(s) next to the guiding region. Negative guide dispersion is easily obtained in the single mode regime. The amount of negative dispersion increases with index depth and physical width of the depressed index region.
