On optical bonding forces between light guides

Author(s): Mark E.Perel’man

If through two parallel light-guides are passing monochromatic waves of identical frequency, the force, repulsive or attractive in dependence on phase difference, takes place between them. This recent experimental result can be described via occurrence of virtual dipoles induced by evanescent wave at processes of light propagation and reflection. So this effect can be considered as an original effect of high frequency polarization and must be taken into account at construction of optical nanostructures. The proposed description can be considered as a special variant of quasi-optics with simplified account of surface phenomena.
