Abstract
We developed a novel finite-difference vector beam propagation method for three-dimensional waveguide structures. The method uses a vector electric field propagating in an inhomogeneous medium under slowly varying envelope approximation. The form birefringence and the coupling between transverse field components are taken into account. The scheme proposed for solving coupled paraxial vector wave equations is based on the operator splitting technique. The resulting algebraic equations are tridiagonal. The method is stable and very efficient.
