The analysis of planar strip-loaded optical waveguides with the vectorial method of lines is described. The main feature of this method is its semianalytical approach, which yields accurate results with less computational effort than other techniques. Hybrid-mode dispersion curves and field and intensity distributions of a sample waveguide are presented.
