Abstract
A radial finite-difference beam propagation method is proposed systematically with circular cylindrical coordinates, which is more accurate for simulation of some radiated waveguide structures. Theoretical design and simulation of low insertion loss arrayed waveguide gratings with couplers of tapered arrayed waveguides are presented using this full-vectorial beam propagation method.
