Abstract

The scattering of optical guided waves by waveguide surface roughness has been analyzed in three dimensions. The scattered fields were determined by satisfying the boundary conditions to first order in the height of the surface roughness. The utility of the theory for practical problems is illustrated by developing explicit formulas for the power radiated by a TE guided wave into the medium above the planar waveguide. These formulas are expressed in terms of the surface autocorrelation function.
