Abstract

The oscillating guided modes and surface modes in an optical fiber with left-handed material core and right-handed material cladding are discussed. Using the dispersion equations for T E , T M , E H , and H E guided modes, their dispersion curves are plotted under the consideration of material dispersion, which is based on an experimental model. Then the properties of the dispersion curves are discussed. For T E ( T M ) oscillating guided modes, their surface modes can connect with each other. However, the E H oscillating guided mode connects with that of the H E surface mode. Further, for the same frequency, the effective refractive index has two different values for oscillating guided modes and three different values for E H 1 surface mode. Double-value properties of guided modes in LHM slab waveguides are already known, but the three-value property of surface modes in LHM waveguides is found and reported here. We also investigate the normalized power fluxes of T E modes. New propagation characteristics for T E oscillating guided modes and surface modes are obtained.
