The paper reports a new method of modal field analysis designed to allow simulation of certain types of multiple coupled waveguides. The analysis, based on a transverse resonance method, allows direct determination of a required optical mode (or supermode) in waveguides of arbitrary complex permittivity profiles. The method solves Maxwell's equations and includes a stability analysis to improve accuracy. The feasibility of using this numerical method in a self-consistent laser simulation has been investigated by modeling the operation of inverted-rib-waveguide structures.
