      Hi guys

      I am following this instruction to analyse the mode in the silicon waveguide.Optimizing waveguide geometry for single-mode – Ansys Optics 

      However, the four modes in the figure are labelled as TE1, TE2/TM1, TE2/TM1, TM2 
      May I ask why there are so many TE2/TM1, TE2/TM1 and no TE0, TM0?

      Thanks a lot!

      Please check the mode profile and compare with the TE0 definition to identify what mode it is.
