Design of Optical Fiber 50/50 Y Coupler & 60/40 Y Coupler & Their Use Cases
Design of Optical Fiber 50/50 Y Coupler & 60/40 Y Coupler & Their Use Cases By Neha Jayeshkumar Chauhan Master of Science in Electrical Engineering The main purposes of this project are to introduce different types of optical fiber couplers with their wide range of applications for establishing optical fiber networks, design the very important optical fiber 50/50 Y coupler and 60/40 Y coupler and give its use cases for various fiber optic network systems with the comparison of 1x2 power splitter. The mathematical model of optical Y coupler is also discussed in detail. The introduction of Beam Propagation Method (BPM), OptiBPM software and OptiSystem software are given. By using OptiBPM software, both the couplers have been designed, scripted, simulated and exported to OptiSystem software. Finally, in OpiSystem software, the use cases of both the couplers have been created and the simulation results have been compared with 1x2 power splitter. The whole procedure from coupler design to its use cases is explained step by step.
