Abstract

Optical Fiber made by plastic or polymer, can be and is being used in various fields of application. Two of the main fields are the automotive and the home networking, polymer optical fiber (POF) here can be seen as one of the best solutions for small world communication, especially in home networking application. In this paper, optical 1x 3 fused-taper-twisted POF splitters has been fabricated by a distinguished technique and proposed to be applied on small world communication application. There several systems available on the market, which can be split a coupled signal to be transmitted into some different channels, which are all afflicted with certain disadvantages. But all these solutions have one main constraint; very expensive for most of the applications as mentioned above. So the goal of this study is to fabricate an economical splitter for small world communication over POF. Characterization of the splitter was reported. Reach up until 668 nm wavelengths Light Emitting Diode (LED) has been injected into the splitter to determine and analyze the level of efficiency of the splitter. Final analysis shows that efficiency of splitter output able to reach up to 80%. 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.
