Slow-light propagation in a cylindrical dielectric waveguide
with metamaterial cladding, Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics 44(2011): 1-6.
The complex amplitude of an arbitrary optical field in the dielectric waveguide
is generally a superposition of these modes:
One is based on combining vapour cells with nanoscale dielectric waveguides
and resonators, while the other consists of nanoscale plasmonic structures integrated with hot vapour cells.
The emphasis is on the engineering rather than the science, and they explain how to solve problems on real diode lasers using a phenomenological understanding, before going into the complex physical details such as the material gain process or mode-coupling in dielectric waveguides
Coverage progresses from electromagnetic wave theory of light to geometrical optics, laser beams and resonators, light-matter interactions, and semiconductor lasers, as well as anisotropic media and modulation of light, noise and optical detection, dielectric waveguides
and optical fibers, and nonlinear optics.
Numerical solution is obtained for a discrete set of propagating and radiating modes of cylindrical dielectric waveguides
