Abstract

In this paper, a method of analysis of dielectric waveguides using a variational method is presented. This method can be applied to dielectric waveguides with any general permittivity distribution. As examples, numerical calculations for dielectric waveguides with rectangular cross-sectional shape and quadratic inhomogeneous permittivity distribution are given.
