Abstract

Coupled waveguides, such as those used as optical filters, switches, or couplers, are investigated in the context of coherence theory. A stochastic source is introduced to the standard coupled-mode model. Decay in the power transferred between the waveguides as a function of distance is predicted. Application of this result in the form of an interferometric spectrometer is explored.
