Coupled Modes

In Fiber optics, a Mode that shares Energy among one or more other modes, all of which propagate together. Note: The distribution of energy among the coupled Modes changes with propagation distance.

In Microwave transmission, a condition where energy is transferred from the Fundamental Mode to higher order modes. Note: Energy transferred to coupled modes is undesirable in usual Microwave Transmission in a waveguide.
