Abstract

The optical waveguides is a dielectric guide which relies on total internal reflection for confinement of waves within the waveguide. The advantage of the usage of waveguide in optical communication could be the economy of scale. The integration of many devices on a single substrate should reduce the cost per function and increase the stability and the robustness of the optical circuit. The reliability of the waveguide based devices is potentially high because there are no moving parts. Broadly, optical waveguides can be classified in to two categories namely 2-D waveguides or slab optical waveguides and 3-D waveguides. 2-D waveguides provides light confinement in transverse direction only. 3-D waveguides, in which the waveguides dimensions are finite in transverse and lateral direction, confine light in lateral direction in addition to the confinement in transverse direction. Most waveguide devices require three dimensional (3D) waveguides to control the guided modes efficiently since these waveguides can provide light confinement within the guide surface addition to light confinement along the depth.
