The power distribution as a function of propagation distance in a network of coupled optical waveguides is determined for several interesting cases. An electrically controllable coupler is proposed and analyzed in detail. High efficiency coupling and decoupling between two optical guides can be accomplished with the use of an electrooptically generated dynamic channel, of finite length, located in between the two guides.
