Abstract

The accurate design of integrated optical S bends, power splitters, and directional couplers is described through a minimum number of normalized parameters. General design curves showing these normalized parameters for waveguides with a step refractive index profile and a quadratic core cross section are given. Thus a wide variety of integrated optical components may be designed accurately without the use of time-consuming numerical methods.
