Paper Abstract

A new method is proposed for direct transformation of electronic energy of metastable species in inverse medium into energy of waveguide modes localized in a dielectric waveguide. Different waveguide configurations are examined. Numerical calculations show that transformation efficiency can be as high as 15-20%.
