Abstract

A ray tracing simulation method for integrated optics hollow waveguides has been developed. This method has been tested on Silicon waveguides with good results, providing a suitable design tool for new devices using this type of waveguides. The simulations allow the design of new guiding structures based on hollow waveguides, like input tapers to reduce the insertion losses. The study of the hollow waveguide behavior with different refractive indices opens the way for their use as refractive index sensors.
