All-dielectric Tailored-index Index-matched Arbitrary Waveguides based on Transformation Optics

24 Feb 2019  ·  Firuzi Shahin, Gong Shengping ·

Transformation optics based on conformal mapping (CM) technique provides a practical approach to designing arbitrary-shaped all-dielectric devices. However, CM may result in large impractical refractive indices unachievable by current fabrication techniques... Furthermore, due to the low design flexibility of CM, the index-matching conditions at the ports of the device can not be realized as well. In this paper we introduce a method for tailoring the CM generated graded refractive index, in order to decrease its maximum value and apply index-matching, while maintaining the propagation path within the device unchanged. This technique is applied to two arbitrary index-matched waveguides. The full-wave simulation is performed to show the efficiency of the tailored-index index-matched waveguides for different relative wavelengths. read more
