Zheng explained that the light beam in a single-mode dielectric taper establishes a field that is evanescent outside the taper core when the tapering angle is small and the energy radiated from the taper interior is concentrated in the close vicinity of the taper core for the whole length of the taper, no matter how long the taper is, whereas the radiation loss is found to be of second order in the tapering angle in [6]; Paying more attention to the description of circular taper, equation 47 in that paper manifests that the local fundamental mode is in accordance with the previous supposition, and that the Bessel function of the first kind of order n and modified Bessel function of the second kind of order n determine the field inside and outside the taper, respectively.
For a one- or two-way taper, there is no difference between these two strategies since the assumed average and true average thicknesses are the same; however, using an assumed average thickness of (H + L)/2 is much easier for all other taper geometries, since information about high- and low-point thicknesses is readily available.
