Radiation losses in dielectric optical waveguides
White, Ian Arthur
The effect of irregularities and deviations from the perfect
structure of the ideal waveguide is to scatter some of the guided power
carried by the modes of the ideal waveguide incident on the irregularity.
This scattered power is redistributed over the (non-attenuating) bound
modes of the structure and into the radiation modes of the waveguide.
The study of this redistribution of the power over the discrete (bound)
mode spectrum can be adequately analysed by conventional...[Show more]
