Abstract

A theoretical presentation of evanescent coupling is offered with respect to the refractive indexes between a side-polished optical fiber and an infinitely planar waveguide with a conductor cladding (PWGCC). The PWG is suspended at a constant distance from an unclad fiber core and attached with the perfect conductor (PEC) on one side. The behavior of the distributed couple. is examined using a coupled mode model, which takes account of the two dimensions of the waveguide configuration. The coupling and propagation of light were found to depend on both the relationship between the refractive index values of each structure and the configuration of the side-polished fiber used in the PWGCC. The spreading of light in the unconfined direction of the PWGCC is described in terms of a simple geometrical interpretation of the synchronization condition that is in agreement with a previous investigation of the problem based on the coupled-mode theory (CMT). The power of the light propagation in the fiber decreased exponentially along the fiber axis as it was transferred to the PWGCC, where it was carried away.
