In the paper are presented numerical studies of gradient index optical splitters made in a multimode interference technology by Ag+ $ARLR Na+ ion exchange process. The influence of geometrical parameters of multimode interference structure and technological process parameters is examined in numerical simulations and gradient index optical waveguide splitters and Mach-Zehnder interferometers are proposed. The possibility of using MMI sections as transducers of distributed sensors is discussed.
