Abstract

An explanation of the working mechanism of single-mode optical-waveguide Y junction is presented. Taking into account the contribution of radiation mode, the power conservation at the junction is clearly verified. Also, the analogy between the behavior of the single-mode Y junction and that of a beam splitter is discussed.
