Paper Abstract

Effect of a light leakage may be observed as in planar waveguides formed in optically anisotropic materials as in primary isotropic multi-layer waveguide structures. This effect results in the exponential decay of the light intensity within the waveguide, but on the other hand it may be used to connect light beams within a substrate with guided light to excite waveguide modes. The characteristics of a light leakage in configurations corresponding to proton-exchanged waveguides in LiNbO3 are discussed.
