Abstract

An expression for the transmitted fraction of the uniform and parallel radiation incident upon the coupler between two rectangular light pipes of different physical dimensions is derived. It is a function of the pipe dimension ratio and the angle of the incident radiation. It is shown that for radiation nearly parallel to the pipe axis, it is possible to design a coupler for any pipe dimension ratio so that all the radiation incident upon it is transmitted by it. Design curves for various incidence angles and the pipe dimensions are presented.
