The coupled-mode equations corresponding to a novel complex long-period-grating-assisted coupler (LPGAC), which consists of both the periodic refractive index modulation and gain/loss perturbation, is introduced and the close-form analytical solution is obtained, for the first time to our knowledge. And a unique unidirectional and nonreversible filtering characteristic is achieved by adjusting the gain/loss to match with the refractive index modulation. In addition, the impact of deviations in the grating profile is also evaluated, and the results show that the required device performance can be realized by controlling the amplitude and phase deviation <5%.
