### Abstract

An efficient, simple numerical method is employed in, conjuntion with an optimum perturbation scheme to solve for the radiating and guided waves of a periodic corrugated dielectric waveguide. Results for sinusoidal, triangular, and rectangular grating profiles on waveguides and waveguidelasers are obtained and compared with approximate analytic expressions.
