Abstract:

This report contains a review of those theoretical aspects of integrated optics which are pertinent to the bending loss studies under way at NWC. Guided modes and their solutions and an introduction to the bending losses in optical dielectric waveguides are presented. The density of optical components on an integrated optical circuit is limited by the loss due to bends in the optical waveguides. This is a report on a preliminary study and is released at the working level for information only. Author
