Abstract
The modeling and design of single-mode planar waveguides and devices for silica-on-silicon technology is a crucial factor in both the quantification of the functionality of novel and innovative light-processing devices, and also in the design stages of any planar fabrication process for device production. There is a range of analytical techniques and an increasing number of numerical techniques readily available to help in this process, and particularly for more complex light processing devices such as arrayed waveguide gratings. However, a good physical understanding of the qualitative behavior of any device is a prerequisite to a full interpretation of the quantitative results. In this paper, a number of existing and novel planar waveguides and devices are discussed from both the qualitative and quantitative viewpoints.
