Abstract:

This report presents the solutions of Maxwells equations for the TE and TM modes of propagation along a thin dielectric slab. From these, the propagation constants are determined and the electric and magnetic field patterns are plotted. These calculations are done with the use of the dielectric coefficients of LiNO3 and GaAs. The wavelengths used are 0.82 micrometers diode laser, 1.064 micrometers NdYAG laser, and 1.55 micrometers diode laser. The thickness of the slabs range from 0.1 to 1.0 micrometers. Keywords Lithium niobates Gallium arsenides Optical waveguides Near infrared waveguides Energy propagation. JHD.
