Unformatted text preview: ECE 437 – Fiber and Integrated Optics Homework Assignment #2 Due date: Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 5:00pm 1. Properties of Mode profile Consider the equation for solving the mode profile (electric field) in a planar wave guide (Equation 3.3 in the text book) 0 a) For Ey1(x) and Ey2(x) corresponding to two different values of β show that the functions Ey1(x) and Ey2(x) are orthogonal. b) Show that for slabs with symmetric refractive index profile n(x)= n(‐x), the modal profiles can be chosen to have eith...
