The design of efficient, wide-angle, dielectric optical waveguide junction splitters with two, or more, branches is outlined. The method has several degrees of freedom which can be used to optimize the device's performance to achieve: 1) Minimization of the radiation loss for a specified mode at the input, 2) Equalization of the modal losses in a dual-mode device, and 3) Controllable power splitting ratio in a multibranch splitter.
