    A complete guide to optical waveguide modes

    This in-depth work explains how transverse optical waveguide geometry influences field distribution and polarization properties. You will gain a thorough understanding of the fundamental physics of mode structure.

    Optical Waveguide Modes covers single- and few-mode optical waveguides with an emphasis on single-core and multicore optical fibers and couplers, including a large range of geometries and anisotropies. Analysis is performed using extensions of the weak-guidance perturbation formalism together with elementary group representation theory. This definitive volume offers a detailed introduction to and classification of diverse forms of fundamental and higher-order modes and various polarization manifestations.

    Coverage includes:

    Electromagnetic theory for anisotropic media

    Weak guidance for longitudinally invariant fibers

    Circular isotropic longitudinally invariant fibers

    Azimuthal symmetry breaking

    Birefringence: linear, radial, and circular

    Multicore and multifiber couplers
