Calculation of the wavelength filter properties of the fiber-slab waveguide structure using vector mode expansion
MetadataShow full item record
A vectorial solution technique is applied to investigate the dispersion characteristics of the ridge modes of a waveguide structure comprising a slab and optical fiber. The power transmission characteristics of the device with respect to wavelength are calculated under various device parameters, such as slab index and fiber-slab separation. We discuss the effects of such parameters on the bandwidth and rejection of the notch filter produced by this structure.
