Vector Finite Element Solution of Saturable Nonlinear Strip-Loaded Optical Waveguides.
IEEE Photonics Technology Letters
A numerical solution is given for Nonlinear optical waveguides with power confinement in both transverse dimensions. Self-consistent solutions are obtained by using an accurate vector finite element formulation along with the penalty technique. Numerical results for the first quasi-TM power-dependent mode are presented for strip-loaded waveguides with saturable self-focusing media. The variations with total power are illustrated for the modal index and for the fraction of the total power carried by different regions, showing interesting abrupt power switching for realistic geometries. © 1991 IEEE
