Abstract

Modification of dipole emission that is due to its optical environment is calculated for planar layered structures. The layers are optically described by standard matrix techniques, and the dipole is included by using additive source terms for the electric field that depend on dipole orientation and wave polarization. These source terms also allow coupling through evanescent waves. We emphasize the applicability of this method to cases in which the power distribution into various modes is affected: dipole emission into guided modes and emission distribution into the various modes of structures that contain multilayer reflectors, such as microcavities.
