The stability characteristics of TE/sub 1/ waves guided by a dielectric slab bounded by semi-infinite, Kerr-type nonlinear media are investigated numerically using variational methods. It is shown that portions of the solutions are not only unstable but follow a route to chaos through period doubling as the guided-wave power increases. The results are presented by means of a bifurcation diagram.<>
