Abstract

Asymmetric Y-branch plastic optical fiber (POF) coupler based on metal- and acrylic-based substrates have been developed.The POF coupler devices utilized two optical designs: a Y-branch structure and an attenuation technique based on lateral displacement of two fibers.The Y-branch designs are based on two waveguide taper structures namely the hollow waveguide taper and the high index contrast waveguide taper.The non-symmetrical coupling ratios are obtained by attenuation due to the lateral displacement of two adjoining fibers at the output port.Fabrication of the device is done by producing the device structures on a metal and acrylic blocks using high speed CNC machining tool.The coupling ratio of the fabricated metal-based coupler ranges from 14.23% to 85.77% with excess loss varies from 6.3 dB to 8.33 dB.Similarly, the fabricated acrylic-based device has coupling ratio ranges from 8.01% to 91.99% with excess loss varying from 5.42 dB to 7.64 dB.
