Experimental investigations of light coupling from a core into a ring caused by microbendings in photonic crystal fibres are shown. We present a setup arrangement, mode fields with and without coupling and a plot of power transfer versus localisation of the modulator along the fibre. We also show the most probable explanation of the obtained data.
