Paper Abstract

The paper presents a modified method of attenuation measurement in planar optical waveguides using two prism couplers. In this method, the output prism has been replaced with the immersion coupler. The assumed solution ensures the maintenance of constant coupling conditions when leading out the wave from the tested planar waveguide, at the moments when the length of propagation distance in the waveguide undergoes changes. The method enables the attenuation measurement of a selected mode. Furthermore,t he assumed solution makes it possible to automation the measurement process.
