Paper Abstract

We develop the analysis of a structure formed by two planar gradient optical waveguides coupled into a dielectric substrate. Using the numerical method named α κ, matrix equation is developed, to obtain the eigenvalues and eigenvectors that describes the critical frequency and wave modes for different levels of asymmetry of the coupled waveguide.
