Abstract : A guided-wave optical power divider having a body made entirely of crystalline silicon and wherein the crossover region of intersecting light guiding channels is doped with a predetermined amount of impurities. By appropriate use of impurities it is possible to create permanent optical power dividers in which a light beam is preselectively directed to follow a preselected path. (Patent applications)
