Abstract

A rigorous, full-vectorial and computationally efficient finite-element-based modal solution, together with junction analysis and beam propagation approaches have been used to study bending loss, transition loss, mode coupling, and polarization coupling in bent optical waveguides. The waveguide offset and their widths have been optimized to reduce the transition loss and the mode beating.
