Abstract

We adapt an efficient finite-difference procedure for determining complex propagation constants to the analysis of modes in planar waveguides. The method requires solving a single rather than multiple eigenvalue equations and does not require prior knowledge of either the nature of the solutions or the position of the modal eigenvalues in the complex plane.
