Summary: 
A novel optical signal splitting method using a holographic transmission grating is proposed for optical communication use. An input beam from a SM-fiber is variably split into two output SM-fibers. Its applicability to the bit-error-free switching of a 1.8 Gbit/s signal is successfully demonstrated.
