Abstract

A general method for analyzing a multilayer optical waveguide with nonlinear cladding and a nonlinear substrate is presented. This method can also be used to analyze a waveguide with a multiple-quantum-well structure and a multibranch waveguide with nonlinear cladding and a nonlinear substrate. Numerical simulation results show that the analysis is correct.
