Abstract


Power transmission and coupling of coupled waveguide fibers are affected on the coupling coefficient. The coupling coefficients obtained in experimental results vary in widely. The coupling coefficients have a function of separation of fiber axis and refractive index of core and cladding. For the empirical formula, coupling coefficient is calculated from experimental
result of coupling ratio distribution from 1% until 75%. Theoretically, the coupling coefficient has a dependence of some parameters resulting in a sinusoidal curve. Both empirical and theoretical formulae are compared to obtain new phenomena of the refractive index of fibers after fusion.

The Journal of Applied Science & Engineering Technology (JASET) is an open access, peer reviewed, double blind, journal for the dissemination of applied technical scholarship.  Topics are in the combined domain of engineering, technology and applied science and focus on solving technical problems in the spirit of “Scholarship of Application” as described in Ernest L. Boyer’s landmark work, Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate.  In summary, the Scholarship of Application disseminates results from the application of technical knowledge to consequential problems.  Applied scholarship is welcome from academia, industry and government agencies.
