Paper Abstract

In the paper it is considered the problem of eigenmode conversion in optical waveguides with inhomogeneous boundaries of dielectric layers. Random boundary profile is treated as fluctuations of refraction index in boundary layer. The intensity of depolarized scattered light is expressed through dispersion and correlation radius of dielectric layer boundaries. Both longitudinal and transversal correlations of boundary profile are taken into account, therefore obtained results are true for a case of arbitrary variations of electromagnetic field in space of fluctuation size.
