Paper Abstract

A hybrid distributed-node fiber-optic passive coupler structure is constructed by distributing the 2 X 2 couplers of conventional central-node star in several nodes, and the configuration of 2 X 2 couplers in each distributed node is adopted a double-tree structure. Compared with other star topologies, all the number of 2 X 2 couplers, fiber length and conduit length required to build up this coupler structure can be greatly reduced. Additionally, this coupler structure has good expansibility and flexibility.
