  • We review key algorithms for the numerical solution of waveguide eigenvalue problems and discuss their application to a typical simulation problem in integrated optics - the computation of eigenmodes of a MQW laser structure. Here we focus mainly on a self adaptive realization of the codes supplying solutions with prescribed accuracy in a CPU-time as short as possible. In a brief outlook we show how to extend these principles to solve general time-harmonic and time-dependent scattering problems in an adaptive finite element context.
