Abstract : This invention concerns an optical communication system having a planar waveguide for a single-mode light wave; and, more particularly, it relates to an improved optical communication system having a unique single-mode wide-core planar waveguide of cladded and composite construction for propagating a single-mode light wave as the result of uniquely using more than one novel algorithmic technique that is based on inverse scattering theory and that analytically determines various design parameters of the waveguide prior to fabrication and use. Patent application. (rrh)
