Abstract

The application of the plane-wave-spectrum method to strip–slab waveguides is described. The dispersion equation of the structure is first evaluated from the condition of self-consistency of rays. By treating the modes as the superpositions of plane waves, Green’s function for the structure is subsequently derived.
