Abstract

Small world networks are promising candidates for communication networks since typical data-flow patterns in communication networks show a large amount of clustering with a small number of long-distance communications that need to be completed quickly. Polymer Optical Fiber (POF) can be and are being used in various fields of application. Two of the main fields are the automotive and the home networking. So, POF here can be seen as one of the best solutions for small world communication especially in home networking application. In this paper, optical 1x3 fused-tapertwisted polymer optical fiber (POF) splitters has been fabricated by a perform 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 disadvantage; they are all too expensive for most of the applications mentioned above. So the goal of this study is to develop an economical splitter for small world communication over POFs. Characterization of the splitter was reported. Red LED with a 650 nm wavelength has been injected into the splitter for the purpose of characterization testing to analyze the level of power efficiency of the splitter. Final analysis shows that efficiency of splitter output able to reach up to 30%. 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.
