Abstract

Three-dimensional bent slot waveguides are analyzed using a combined effective-index method/modified transfer-matrix method. The effective refractive index and bending loss of the guided mode can be acquired. The results closely match those calculated by the full-vectorial finite-difference method. This method also enables the calculation of field distribution, useful in estimating power confined in the narrow slot, and can handle asymmetric bent slot waveguides, bent multiple-slot waveguides, and hybrid bent slot waveguides. This approach has advantages of simplicity, versatility, and time-saving calculation, which are beneficial for the quick design of devices using bent slot waveguides.
