Abstract

A variational moment method is used to calculate propagation constants of 1-D optical waveguides with an arbitrary index profile. The method is applicable to 2-D waveguides as well, and the index profiles need not be symmetric. Examples are given for the lowest-order and the next higher-order modes and are compared with exact numerical solutions.
