Abstract

The scattering properties of an abruptly ended buried slab waveguide for both TE and TM modes are examined by an improved iteration technique that is based on the integral equation method with “accelerating” parameters. The waveguide is considered a symmetrical slab, for which the weakly guiding conditions are invalid, and it is embedded in a different dielectric material. The tangential electric field distribution on the terminal plane, the reflection coefficient of the first TE and TM guided modes, and the far-field radiation pattern are computed. Numerical results are presented for several ended waveguides, while special attention is given to the far-field radiation pattern rotation and the terminal field distributions.
