General coupling equations are derived describing field amplitude transfer from a prism to an anisotropic, uniaxial waveguide, having its optical axis in the plane of incidence. The influence of optical axis orientation on coupling efficiency and selectivity is discussed for a Gaussian incident beam.

  11. As in Ref. 2, the analysis may be extended to a 2-D Gaussian incident beam (corresponding to a laser TEM00 mode), because the coupling process leaves the profile in the beam unchanged in the direction perpendicular to the principal plane of the incidence.
