We assume that the light in the guide propagates in the z direction, that confinement occurs transversely in the x direction, and that both the structure and the light are uniform in the y direction perpendicular to x z. Our physical picture of guided light propagation is, then, that of light traveling in zig-zag fashion X COVER z SUBSTRATE Os Fig. 5. Side-view of a slab waveguide showing wave normals of the zig-zag waves corresponding to a guided mode through the film. More precisely, it is a picture of two superimposed uniform plane waves with wavenormals which follow the zig-zag path indicated in the figure and which are totally reflected at the film boundaries.

Fundamentals of the Electromagnetic Theory of Dielectric Waveguides In this section we propose to collect the, by now well developed, fundamentals of the electromagnetic theory of dielectric waveguides, and to discuss some of the general properties of the waveguide modes. This includes a listing of the relevant forms of Maxwell's equations and of the wave equations, a deduction of modal field properties following from symmetry considerations, a proof for the orthogonality of the modes, and a discussion of mode expansion and normalization, of the variation theorem, of power transport and stored energy, and of variational principles applicable to dielectric waveguides.
Fig. 6. Sketch of graphical solution of the dispersion equation for the fundamental modes of symmetric and asymmetric slab waveguides curve). Consider the symmetric guide first, where the intersection between the solid and the dotted curve yields the zig-zag angle 8 of the fundamental mode. We note that the zig-zags get steeper (8 smaller) as h/A. gets smaller, but there is always a solution even when the film thickness gets very small. This implies that there is no cutoff for the fundamental mode of a symmetric guide.
