Abstract

A 2 × 2 photonic crystal fiber (PCF) planar lightwave circuit (PLC) splitter, which splits optical power between two PCF channels, has been made by PCF-to-PLC connections. PCF array blocks were lithographically fabricated to have fiber V grooves and used to firmly hold PCFs and align them to the PLC splitter. The proposed splitter showed a rather flat splitting ratio over a wide wavelength range from 1250 nm to 1750 nm . With the implemented splitter, we obtained a low excess loss of 1.6 dB , a low polarization-dependent loss of 0.1 dB , and a high return loss of 52 dB . The ultrabroadband operation of the proposed splitter is expected to find applications in optical performance monitoring, Ethernet passive optical networks, and biomedical optics including optical coherence tomography.
