Paper Abstract

We have observed light coupling in dual-core dye-doped polymer optical fibers. The experimentally observed coupling length is consistent with the standard coupled-mode theory for single-mode--singlemode coupling between step-index waveguides [1. We have also observed intensity-dependent coupling in a fixed-length dual-core fiber.
