Abstract

In this chapter, the analysis of thermal distribution in planar optical waveguide cross-section when a single heater electrode applied is presented. Starting from the heat equation, the thermal analysis has been done using two proposed numerical methods which are include finite element method (FEM) and finite difference method (FDM). By considering conduction as the only heat transfer mechanism, the obtained results from the mentioned methods are shown to have a good agreement.
