An essential device in opto-electronics is the optical waveguide. In the following we present a way to incorporate a waveguide field source into numerical time-domain simulations via the total field/scattered field technique. In particular, we develop a method by which we introduce a Gaussian light-pulse with the real eigenmodes of a slab waveguide into the nodal discontinuous Galerkin time-domain scheme.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
