Abstract

A comparison of the single-mode condition for semiconductor rib waveguides with large cross section obtained by the effective index method and the corrected formula proposed by Soref et al. [8] with experimental data is carried out. It is found that the effective index method is in a better agreement with Rickman's [11] experimental data than the modified version. Moreover a stronger condition is proposed for single-mode design purposes.
