Planar lightwave circuit (PLC) splitters regulate the power of optical signals via splitting and routing, delivering reliable light distribution. The mechanism behind PLC structures has been recently developed. It enables the design of application solutions requiring more sizable split configuration by fabricating waveguides utilizing lithography on a substrate composed of silica glass. This permits the channeling of calculated amounts of light in percentage form. The end result is the construction of PLC splitters with the ability to provide highly accurate and uniform splits with minimal losses. They have a broader operating wavelength range (12601650 nm) than low-cost fused biconic tapered (FBT) couplers. The technology offers a comprehensive temperature range, featuring improved uniformity, enhanced reliability, and smaller size compared to FBT couplers.
Low polarization dependence of PLC, low loss, and broader operating wavelength than the other types of optical splitters fuel the growth of the global PLC splitters market. However, complexities being high for the fabrication of the devices hinders the growth of the market. Increase in dependency on internet serves as the major opportunity for the market.
