Abstract

We consider the confined modes in dual-state two-dimensional waveguides in which each slab segment of waveguides can support two vertically confined modes with different effective indices. A matrix formulation is developed to extend the conventional effective-index method to investigate the two-dimensional confinement in multistate waveguides. The results are presented and discussed.
