A simple and efficient analytical method is presented for studying leaky modes in a buried rectangular waveguide on a high-refractive-index substrate. The cross-sectional profile of the refractive index for the buried rectangular waveguide is decomposed into three parts. The two main parts correspond to two independent multilayered slab waveguide structures and the remaining part is treated as a small perturbation term. The contributions from all three parts to the leakage loss are given analytically. Numerical results are presented and compared with those calculated with the semi-vectorial finite difference method. Fast speed, satisfactory accuracy and simplicity are the main advantages of the present method.
