Abstract

We discuss the symmetric multiport and show in a constructive way how it can be decomposed into a set of beam splitters. Based on the decomposition we estimate the number of beam splitters needed. It is shown that for more than three input ports the number of beam splitters needed is less than the number indicated by the standard decomposition scheme.
