Abstract

The governing equation of the slowly decaying imaginary distance beam propagation method (SD-ID-BPM) is further modified, for calculating the eigenmodes in optical fibers and waveguides. Its convergence is analyzed in detail and compared to the earlier version of SD-ID-BPM and other methods. It is demonstrated that the method described here can converge to the same desired accuracy within fewer propagation steps than the earlier version of SD-ID-BPM and other methods. Since the governing equation of the SD-ID-BPM is a partial differential equation with higher order derivatives, it might be interesting if the discretization in the transverse xy plane is performed by applying the numerical techniques for partial differential equations with higher order derivatives.
