Paper Abstract

We proposed a compact design of cascade Y-branch splitter devices. The new device consists of a 1×N branching region and a fan-out region. The length requirement of this new design is analyzed, the results show that the device length can be sharply cut, when N is larger than 8. As an example of this new structure, we designed an 1×16 branching splitter by K+/Na+ ion-exchange in BK7 glass, the smallest S-bend radius is 30mm, and the total bends length is about 20mm, it is 69% length of ordinary splitter.
