A physical explanation of the lateral guiding mechanism in channeled-substrate-planar (CSP) lasers based on the amount of wavefront tilt of the transverse field outside the channel region is presented. Because of this inherent wavefront tilt, all CSP lasers will have a very slight asymmetry in their transverse far-field pattern. The nature of the guiding mechanism does not require light absorption by the substrate. Design curves showing the complex lateral effective index step as a function of n-clad thickness with the active layer as a parameter are also presented. Depending on the specific layer compositions and thicknesses, the CSP guiding mechanism can provide a positive lateral index step for substrates with mole fractions of AlAs ranging from 0 to higher than 0.2
