The stability is determined for TE//1 , nonlinear, stationary wave solutions in planar optical waveguides with nonlinear substrate and cladding bounding media. The numerical scheme involves propagation of the transverse field distribution corresponding to a standing-wave solution on the appropriate branch of the nonlinear dispersion curve. The results indicate that large regions on the TE//1 branches are unstable. Limited results are also given for a TE//2 branch with a power threshold.
