Abstract

Novel waveguide beam splitters and recombiners based on multimode propagation phenomena in hollow step-index waveguides are predicted and demonstrated. The splitter designs are based on symmetrically feeding the fundamental-mode field from a square cross-section waveguide, 2a × 2a, into a multimode rectangular guide, 2a × 2b (b > a). As a result of multimode superposition phenomena, unique transverse-field patterns representing different-order multiway splitting of the input field occur at predictable positions along the rectangular-guide axis. The predictions are verified experimentally at 10.6 μm with hollow dielectric waveguides but are considered to be more widely applicable.
