This study uses the beam propagation method to propose a new design of multicore photonic crystal fiber-based 1 × 8 two-dimensional splitters. An optical signal at a wavelength of 1.55 μm inserted into the central core is equally divided into eight other cores, each with 12.5% of the total power. In addition, the physical behavior of the coupling characteristics is obtained using coupled mode analysis. Numerical simulations demonstrate that the optical signal can be divided equally in a photonic crystal fiber structure having dimensions of 60 μm × 60 μm × 5.35 mm.
