A 1×2 adaptive optical splitter structure is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The 1×2 adaptive optical splitter structure is based on Opto-VLSI in conjunction with 4-f imaging system. An Opto-VLSI processor is software driven and capable of splitting an optical beam into different directions when a multicasting phase hologram is uploaded. An input optical signal launched into an input optical fiber port is split and coupled into two output optical fiber ports with arbitrary splitting ratios over a wavelength range exceeding 50 nm.
