A new complex Jacobi iterative technique adapted for the solution of three-dimensional (3D) non-paraxial beam propagation is presented. The beam propagation equation for analysis of optical propagation in waveguide structures is based on a novel modified Padé(1,1) approximant operator we recently proposed. The effectiveness of our new approach is demonstrated in comparison with the traditional direct matrix inversion. Our method is targeted towards large waveguide structures with a long path length.
