This paper is devoted to the theoretical analysis of the modal properties of planar antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides (ARROWs) with graded-index core layers. It is shown, that the presence of antiresonant cladding layers beneath the core results in reduction of the number of guided modes, which enables the single-mode operation of the waveguides with thicker cores. Spatial properties of the modes are also investigated with emphasis on the variation of field profiles with the parameters of the cladding layers. The analysis is restricted to the lossless planar ARROW configuration and bound ARROW modes.
