Abstract

The paper presents a study on the reliability and limits of the downhill simplex algorithm used to reconstruct optical parameters of double-layer silica waveguides from the measured effective indexes. It provides a number of surface plots of the merit function and explains the behavior of the algorithm in practical situations where the measured effective index data are affected by noise.
