Variable optical splitter based on wavelength-sensitive components and related intelligent passive optical network
This paper proposed a novel variable optical splitter, of which the splitting ratio can be dynamically adjusted according to different wavelengths. A novel intelligent passive optical network (PON) system based on this splitter was also presented. Experimental results demonstrated that the insertion loss can be reduced corresponding to the decrease of the splitting ratio.
