Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to use the finite element method using a penalty function formulation to solve the vector wave equation with transverse H-field formulation together with the boundary operator. We impose continuity conditions on the boundary interfaces for both Ez and Hz components. We apply this technique to obtain the propagation constant for a three-layer ridge structure and a multiple quantum well ridge guide as examples, and a comparison with previously published results shows excellent agreement.
