Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHODS FOR ROUTING OPTICAL SIGNALS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉS DE ROUTAGE DE SIGNAUX OPTIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) A system (10) and methods (800, 900) for routing optical signals are disclosed. The system includes a large core hollow waveguide (30) having a reflective coating (40) covering an interior surface (32) of the hollow waveguide configured to guide a light beam (104). At least one area based beam splitter (50) is integrally formed with the hollow waveguide and has an angled reflective surface (52) with a selectable height (H) relative to the interior surface. The angled reflective surface is oriented to redirect a predetermined amount of the light beam (114) based on the height of the angled reflective surface.
(FR) On décrit un système (10) et des procédés (800, 900) de routage de signaux optiques. Le système comprend un guide d'ondes creux (30) doté d'un cœur de grande dimension et d'un revêtement réfléchissant (40) recouvrant une surface intérieure (32) du guide d'ondes creux configuré pour guider un faisceau lumineux (104). Au moins un séparateur (50) de faisceau basé sur l'aire est formé de manière intégrée avec le guide d'ondes creux et présente une surface réfléchissante inclinée (52) dont la hauteur (H) par rapport à la surface intérieure peut être choisie. La surface réfléchissante inclinée est orientée de façon à rediriger une proportion prédéterminée du faisceau lumineux (114) en fonction de la hauteur de la surface réfléchissante inclinée.
