Paper Abstract

The use of multimode interference (MMI) structures within Mach-Zehnder configurations have showed some promise for switching and power splitting functions in integrated optics circuits. In this paper a matrix model is presented that can aid in assessing the switching and power-splitting capabilities of these structures. The paper also examines some of the factors that may limit the performance of these devices when high port counts are attempted.
