The optical Power splitters which allow for fiber connections are based on Different design techniques and fabrication process. The 1x4 optical power splitters have four output channels which are suitable for a number of network architectures by better adaptation to existing constructions like fiber cables and fiber management systems. The 4- level splitter can be used for cascading in the distributed network. The splitter cascade distributes the optical signal from one fiber to 16 subscribers via 4 splitting points in different locations but with equal signal levels for all 16 subscribers. This paper is aimed to provide reviews on different design techniques and fabrication process required while designing 1X4 optical power splitter.
