Thin‐film dielectric waveguides with a periodic refractive index, a periodic substrate, or periodic surface are studied. The field is determined from Maxwell's equations using Floquet's theorem. The Brillouin diagram and the interaction regions are investigated. The bandwidth and the attenuation coefficients of the interaction regions are given as a function of the optical wavelength. A number of applications in active and passive integrated optics systems are discussed.
