Abstract

The perfectly matched layer boundary condition for arbitrary anisotropic media is incorporated into the approximate scalar beam propagation method. The procedure is based on a finite-element method for three-dimensional anisotropic optical waveguides with off-diagonal elements in a permittivity tensor. In order to treat a wide-angle beam propagation, the Padé approximant operator is employed. To show the validity and usefulness of this approach,numerical results are presented for Gaussian beam propagation in free space and Gaussian beam excitation on a three-dimensional anisotropic optical waveguide.
