Paper Abstract

A novel power splitter based on self-imaging phenomenon in multimode heterostructure is designed and analyzed. Such a photonic crystal waveguide is a structure combining square and hexagonal photonic crystal lattices. The size and transmission of our designed new power splitter is much smaller and higher in comparison with the conventional MMI power splitter. The device can be applied to optical communication systems and be integrated easily with other optical devices. The finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method is adopted for the numerical simulation of related structure. This approach can be extended to novel design of MMI device based on photonic crystals.
