Abstract
The transfer matrix method is employed to analyze the modal propagation within antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides (ARROW) implemented in InP/InGaAsP multilayer planar structures. The analysis provides an accurate picture of dispersion and attenuation of TE polarized waves at the operational wavelength of 1. 55 pm. The numerical results show the optimum values of system parameters for low loss operation and may be useful for designing various optoelectronic devices such as semiconductor lasers or optical amplifiers monolithically integrated with low loss passive ARROW guides which are suitable for coupling to external elements e. g. to optical fibers.
