We present here numerical estimates of the density and flux of energy based on physical parameters associated with the absorption properties of certain types of absorbing optical waveguides. These results are based on a theoretical formalism established previously for the initial field incident upon the entrance pupil of an absorbing optical waveguide. Based on these results, the mechanisms of confined energy transmission and possible cross talk between neighboring waveguides are discussed. Some comments on the behavior of Bessel functions with complex arguments are also included in the discussion.
