    Abstract

    A new design of variable passive X-coupler optical waveguide device is proposed and its geometry and application are discussed. This device differs from other conventional 2×2 directional couplers and fixed X-coupler, as the functionality of the device is based on the principle that is symmetrical, with variable parameters, the power in each excited mode can be directed unambiguously into one of the output channels by varying any of its parameters. The geometry and relative position between the input waveguide and the second waveguide of this symmetrical X-shaped channels will determine the power splitting ratio. The device has excellent features over other passive optical couplers, due to the flexibility of the design parameters such as the off-set distance in the z-direction and the spacing between the waveguides in the y-direction.
