Brief introduction of planar optical waveguide divider

- Mar 13, 2018-

As a core part of FTTx network, splitter is a typical application of Passive Optical Network (PON) in the following two aspects: 1., as the power distributor (Power splitter) of downlink optical signal (1490nm and 1550nm).

2. as a beam closing device (Combiner) used as a uplink optical signal (1310nm)

The detailed network form is not the focus of the discussion here, and can refer to the relevant Monograph (such as the "FTTX Concepts and Applications" of Gerd Keiser). The main discussion here is the principle and performance of the shunt.
