Abstract In this paper is presented a new design for Young Interferometer YI biosensor and the analysis of output power of a MMI waveguide that will be used in it. The waveguides are simulated with OptiBPM software which is a Waveguide Optics Modeling software from Optiwave Coorporation. Output power and excess loss is analysed for 126616205 and 1266162010 planar MMI waveguides for different wavelengths with TE and TM polarization. It is demonstrated that output power decreases exponentially with the increase of the wavelength for both polarizations. The evaluation of the excess loss shows that it is higher for a TM polarized field for all the wavelengths and periodicities considered. Power imbalance seems to have small values suggesting the use of MMI waveguides as good power splitters. A comparison of the excess loss between 126616205 and 1266162010 MMI waveguides shows that it remains almost the same for both polarizations for the optimum wavelength 2661548 647 nm.
