Abstract

This research focuses on fabrication of 1 by 12 multimode polymethyl methacrylate based step-index polymer optical fiber (PMMA SI-POF). This home-made bundled-fiber splitters have been fabricated by a Distinctive technique. There several systems available on the market, which able to split or couple optical signals transmitted into some different channels, which are all afflicted with certain disadvantages. But all these solutions have one main disadvantage; they are all too expensive for most of the applications especially for home-networking. So the goal of the research is to develop an economical splitter for home-network application over PMMA-POF. Characterization of the splitter was reported. Red LED with 650 nm wavelength has been injected into the splitter with the aim to analyze power efficiency of the splitter. A coupling efficiency of 80% has been demonstrated. The device performance can be improved gradually through experience and practice. Main point here is the fabrication process is simple, easy and suitable to be used for household.
