Paper Abstract

A multimode interference device is usually used in a variety of optical communication components, is a mature development of integrated optical components. Traditionally, the original of integrated optics usually be used in the field of optical communications, we will extend the applications of multimode interference device in this paper, we try multimode interference device applications in the field of natural light illumination systems and the lighting guides which our goal is each visible wavelength of light coupled with a waveguide transmission. In our proposed, we use poly(dimethylsiloxane)(PDMS) to fabricate this device, there is a high transmission efficiency(>95%) and over a very large bandwidth. The device demonstrated good confinement of visible light and low attenuation at 0.40 dB/cm.
