Abstract
Transmission characteristics are studied for parallel-plate waveguide coupler. It is shown that the stable light field distribution and mode pattern are determined by its own geometric and dielectric parameters, but have nothing to do with the categories of incident sources. It is also found that the coupling effect would generate between waveguides through evanescent field. The calculated results indicate that the field amplitudes in both waveguides are changing with the change of propagation distances, simultaneously the transmitted powers are changing periodically between the two waveguides along the direction of wave propagation. According to the field distributions, the optimum coupling length and coupling efficiency can be obtained. Our numerical simulation is based on the finite difference time domain method without using special mathematical knowledge.
