    • Abstract

       

      The coupling of light waves travelling clockwise and counterclockwise along an optical ring due to a back-scattering element is studied. An asymmetric mode splitting occurs as a consequence of the discontinuity suffered by the waves at the scattering point. The mode splitting shows up in an interference pattern and lends itself to an experimental verification.
