Abstract

The whispering gallery modes of a curved antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide are described and analyzed. We present a ray analysis method that can be used to derive an eigenmode equation and to analyze the loss characteristics of a waveguide in rectangular coordinates by using conformal transformation. With an optimized design of an antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide structure, the propagation loss of such a waveguide can be significantly reduced.
