Sharp bend in two-dimensional optical waveguide based on gradient refractive index structure.

Abstract

In this work, we propose the design of a sharp bend in a two-dimensional optical waveguide which has super-ellipse curve boundaries and a gradient refractive index structure in its core. Numerical simulations are presented to show the efficient light propagation in the waveguide bend, as well as the efficient light coupling between the proposed waveguide… (More)
