Abstract

We address light propagation in couplers with longitudinal biharmonic modulation of refractive index in neighboring channels. While simplest single-frequency out-of-phase modulation allows suppression of coupling for a strictly defined set of resonant frequencies, the addition of modulation on multiple frequencies dramatically modifies the structure of resonances. Thus, additional modulation on a double frequency may suppress the primary resonance, while modulation on a triple frequency causes fusion of primary and secondary resonances.
