We present a robust iterative technique for solving complex transcendental dispersion equations routinely encountered in integrated optics. Our method especially befits the multilayer dielectric and plasmonic waveguides forming the basis structures for a host of contemporary nanophotonic devices. The solution algorithm ports seamlessly from the real to the complex domain--i.e., no extra complexity results when dealing with leaky structures or those with material/metal loss. Unlike several… CONTINUE READING
