2.5 Dielectric slab waveguide Consider a dielectric slab waveguide which has a thin GaAs layer of thickness 0.2 µ m between two AlGaAs layers. The refractive index of GaAs is 3.66 and that of the AlGaAs layers is 3.40. What is the cut-off wavelength beyond which only a single mode can propagate in the waveguide assuming that the refractive index does not vary greatly with the wavelength? If a radiation of wavelength 870 nm (corresponding to bandgap radiation) is propagating in the GaAs layer, what is the penetration of the evanescent wave into the AlGaAs layers? What is the mode field distance of this radiation? Solution Given n 1 = 3.66 (AlGaAs), n 2 = 3.4 (AlGaAs), 2 a = 2 × 10 -7 m or a = 0.1 µ m, for only a single mode we need V = 2 π a λ n 1 2 n 2 2 () 1/ 2 < π 2 > 2 π an 1 2 n 2 2 π 2 = 2 π (0.1 µ m) 3.66 2 3.40 2 ( ) 1/2 π 2 = 0. 542 µ m. The cut-off wavelength is 542 nm. When = 870 nm, V = 2 π (1 µ m) 3.66 2 3.40 2 (0.870 µ m) = 0.979 < π /2 Therefore, = 870 nm is a single mode operation.
