Abstract
We design a 1 X 4 optical splitter made of photonic crystal waveguides and analyze the properties of the optical splitter using the finite-difference time-domain method. Our simulation results show that the transmission properties vary with bend geometries and wave frequencies. Additionally we perform numerical simulations of T-shaped waveguide branches in the splitter to reduce the reflections at the T- branches. The improvement of transmission is achieved by placing the defects of extra rods in the branching region.
