dielectric waveguide
A waveguide that consists of a dielectric material surrounded by another dielectric material, such as air, glass, or plastic, with a lower refractive index. Note 1: An example of a dielectric waveguide is an optical fiber. Note 2: A metallic waveguide filled with a dielectric material is not a dielectric waveguide.
