The evanescent coupling between two parallel circular dielectric waveguides is analyzed using a singular perturbation technique. The analysis is based on the vectorial wave formulation. The first-order coupled-mode equations are derived in an analytically closed form, which are rigorous in the sense that they satisfy the Maxwell equations and the boundary conditions for the composite waveguide system within the first-order perturbation. It is shown, in a general manner, that the two orthogonally polarized modes of the isolated waveguides yield the different coupling coefficients and the polarization effect is in proportion to the relative difference of permittivities of the core and cladding regions
