Abstract

The dispersion properties of a thin-film optical waveguide for TE and TM modes are expressed in simple and general analytic forms. These formulas describe the variation of the effective refractive index with respect to any physical parameter with which the refractive index of any layer or the thickness of the guiding layer may vary. Universal curves for both TE and TM modes are given, and applications of the formulas are discussed.
