16 September 2016 Propagation properties of metallic dielectric cladded waveguides
Author Affiliations +
The propagation properties of 1D waveguides composed by a dielectric core and a multilayered metallic dielectric cladding are numerically analyzed in details for applications covering the O-E-S-C-L-U optical communication bands. The propagation length, penetration depth and the figure of merit as a function of their geometrical and optical parameters are presented. The strong dependence of their properties with their constituent materials has been observed. Long propagation distances with high values of figure of merit can be obtained, opening the possibility to develop devices of high performance in the optical band under inspection.
