Abstract
The effects of metal-cladding on the cutoff condition of step and graded index optical waveguides are analyzed by the perturbation method in this paper. The cutoff thickness of metal-cladding waveguide is thicker than the waveguide with the dielectric (air) cladding. For step index profiles optical waveguides, the cutoff thickness of TE0 mode is more 7% than the case with air cladding, and TM0 mode is 26%.
