Abstract

We have investigated a waveguide bend having enhanced curvature with reduced loss. The waveguide width is made wider toward the inner side of the bend. The numerical analysis, by means of the beam propagation method, showed that the loss of the proposed bend is lower than that of an abrupt bend or a smooth bend of constant curvature. For a typical waveguide, we have optimized the structure of the bend and achieved one order of loss reduction in comparison with an abrupt bend of the same angle.
