Abstract

A novel design of multimode asymmetric hollow Y-junction optical power-splitter is proposed. This Y-junction simply utilizes the technique of shifting the axis of the arm of the output port so that the required power-splitting ratio can be obtained. The transmission characteristics were simulated using non-sequential ray-tracing technique. The hollow-waveguide structure has cross-section area of 1 × 1-mm 2 and was coated with 45-nm-thick reflective layer to enhance reflectivity in the waveguide channel. The waveguide splits the output power asymmetrically in the range of 93% to 7% with ±3% splitting-ratio accuracy. The insertion loss at the shift-port has a minimum value of 5.50 to a maximum of 16.38 dB for 0.00 to 0.90-mm shifting of the axis respectively. While the optical excess loss at the shift-port varies from 1.58 to 4.34 dB.
