In this paper we studied an asymmetrically cladded Y-Junction in Ti:LiNb03 in order to investigate the passive polarization splitting behaviour related to the action of a buffer layer supposed to cover only one branch. Different widths of the two arms and appropriate dividing angle are chosen to improve the expected performance. We analysed the Y-structure by utilizing a bounded step approximation involving the mode-conversion between guided and radiation modes. To evaluate the effective indexes of both modes in each step, we utilized the effective index method by considering the two dimensional refractive index profiles.
