Abstract

We have measured a propagation length L of TM0 and TE0 guided waves in a lossy Si film surrounded by identical dielectrics 632.8 nm in wavelength. The propagation length L ATR ( E ) estimated from experimental attenuated total reflection (ATR) spectra deviated largely from the propagation length L ATR ( T ) estimated from calculated ATR spectra in the range of small optical thickness of Si film hopt. This discrepancy may arise from an angular beam spread of incident light. We have proposed a method to measure L directly. This method gave us an L for TM0 guided waves of 1.6 mm at hopt = 6.1 nm. This value is in good agreement with L ATR ( T ) when L ATR ( E ) = 0.2 ‚ÄČ mm, under certain conditions.
