Abstract

A novel numerical method, based on the mechanical resonance to extract pure eigenmodes, is presented for calculating the modes of arbitrary-shaped optical waveguides. This method can accurately treat a system containing as many as ~106 meshes. It is demonstrated that the algorithm is useful for the analysis, modeling, and design of lossless optical waveguides.
