Paper Abstract

The mean square fluctuations of log amplitude and phase are studied analytically for TM modes propagating in an uniaxial anisotropic waveguide having random inhomogeneities caused by fluctuations in space of the optic-axis direction. In considered configuration the TE modes propagates unperturbed. The perturbed TM field is obtained by using the Green's function technique. The fluctuation characteristics of log-amplitude and phase are calculated by using a method of Rytow approximation. The dependence of the mean-square values of log-amplitude and phase on the propagation distance, and the degree of random inhomogeneities of the dielectric tensors is discussed.
