The finite-difference beam-propagation method is applied to the analysis of hollow slab waveguides (HSWs). The attenuation constants for the TE0 and TE1 modes are evaluated and compared with those obtained by the perturbation theory. The propagating field and differential power loss in the transition from a straight HSW to a bent HSW are revealed and discussed.
