Abstract

A radiation mode technique, first used in optical fibre theory, is used to study the propagation of waves in practical optoelectronic devices. The method is validated against other techniques for step discontinuities, tapers, air-gaps and Y junctions. The solution deals successfully with reflected waves and is found to be accurate enough to be used for design purposes.
