The propagation properties of 1D waveguides composed by a dielectric core and a multilayered metallic dielectric cladding are numerically analyzed in details for applications covering the O-E-S-C-L-U optical communication bands. The propagation length, penetration depth and the figure of merit as a function of their geometrical and optical parameters are presented. The strong dependence of their properties with their constituent materials has been observed. Long propagation distances with high values of figure of merit can be obtained, opening the possibility to develop devices of high performance in the optical band under inspection.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
