Abstract

We analytically solve the guided transverse magnetic modes of symmetrical planar slot waveguides and show that multiple modes may exist in a slot waveguide. For all types of modes in waveguides with the index of the slot greater than that of the cladding and vice versa, field solutions and characteristic equations are derived and the cutoff conditions are provided and discussed.
