A complete guide to optical waveguide modesThis 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 mediaWeak guidance for longitudinally invariant fibersCircular isotropic longitudinally invariant fibersAzimuthal symmetry breakingBirefringence: linear, radial, and circularMulticore and multifiber couplers
