Abstract

The properties of a wideband photonic crystal power splitter with different output power levels based on directional coupling are investigated numerically with the finite-difference time-domain method. The effects of changing the coupling length and radius of the coupling rods between parallel waveguides on output transmissions are investigated. By further splitting power in each branch a power splitter with four output branches is proposed.
