“We present a modal analysis of coupled two-core integrated waveguides fabricated by femtosecond laser writing as a function of the core-to-core distance, illuminating position and input light wavelength. In order to do that we use the correlation filter method, implementing the computer generated holograms in a phase-only spatial light modulator. Due to the two-core waveguide symmetry, we prove it is not necessary to encode the complex amplitude in a phase-only device as long as the cores are not strongly coupled. A comparison between experimental and numerical modal weights is presented, showing that simple phase-only match filters allow the modal decomposition of two-core waveguides output beams”
