Stationary phase Monte Carlo path integral analysis of electromagnetic wave propagation in graded-index waveguides Academic Article uri icon


  • The stationary phase Monte Carlo (SPMC) path integral method is applied to analyze electromagnetic wave propagation in transversely inhomogeneous media. A filter, which gives a stable result with respect to various Monte Carlo parameters and thus overcomes the difficulties previously associated with the multidimensional SPMC technique, is constructed to evaluate the propagation field. Numerical results are presented for a graded-index waveguide, and are in good agreement with those obtained by another independent path integral approach, viz., the split-step method. 1994 IEEE
