Abstract

A systematic and analytic approach is made to approximate dispersion properties of dielectric three-layered slab and rod waveguides. The explicit formula obtained yields errors less than 1% except very near the cutoff frequencies of guided modes. The errors diminish rapidly as the normalized frequency increases. The formula has the same expression for slab and fiber waveguides.
