Paper Abstract

The nonlinear directional coupler is analyzed in the presence of asymmetrically distributed and saturable nonlinear refractive index. We make use of the linear supermodes of the structure and phase-space techniques, which allows to obtain the main features of its behavior, without the need of solving the coupled mode equations.
