Abstract

We present the dispersion relations for symmetric planar waveguides in general isotropic media. The planar waveguide structure that utilizes chiral media in the cladding regions is emphasized. Unlike other symmetric planar waveguide configurations in isotropic media, this structure possesses a nondegenerate lowest-order mode. Therefore symmetric planar waveguides using chiral cladding materials can support single-mode operation.
