Abstract

The propagation properties of light in anisotropic optical planar waveguides with different index distributions are investigated with the analytical transfer-matrix method. Dispersion equations are analytically deduced by the method in terms of different index profiles. It is shown by examples that this method exhibits good accuracy compared with numerical methods while still holding physical insight.
