Abstract

The coupled-mode equations governing the interaction of two guided modes in a pair of parallel, identical dielectric waveguides are deduced by a quasi-optical technique that also yields an elegant expression for the attenuation coefficient of the guided wave owing to losses in the various spatial regions.
