Abstract

On the basis of the transfer-matrix technique, the concept of the equivalent attenuated vector is proposed and used to analyze the characteristics of the propagating modes in planar optical waveguides with graded refractive-index profile; an exact analytic equation is obtained for the dispersion equation of arbitrary graded refractive-index planar optical waveguides.
