A novel bidirectional decomposition of exact solutions to the scalar wave equation has been shown to form a natural basis for synthesizing localized-wave (LW) solutions that describe localized, slowly decaying transmission of energy in free space. We present a theoretical feasibility study that shows the existence of LW solutions in optical fiber waveguides… (More)
