Abstract


In this paper we present a detailed physical analysis of the formation of the propagation transverse modes in planar dielectric waveguides using a mathematical-physics approach. We demonstrate physically that, at the wavelength scale, the pure stationary mode inside planar waveguide is described by the cosine function. Meanwhile, the sine function yields a quasi-stationary periodic mode.
