Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is a good solution for increasing data bitrate communication of multicore polymer optical fiber (MC-POF) based visible light communication (VLC) system. However, this solution requires adding more optical components to the system which can limit its performance. In order to solve this issue, we propose a new design for an RGB demultiplexer based on polycarbonate (PC) MC-POF structure. The new structure is based on replacing several air-holes areas with PC layers over the fiber length which enables controlling the light propagation direction between the pc layers. The positions of the PC layers and the key geometrical parameters of the MC-POF were optimized and analyzed utilizing the beam propagation method (BPM). Results show that an RGB wavelength splitter can be obtained over a light propagation of 20 mm with an excellent crosstalk of -19.436 to -26.474 dB, low losses of 0.901 to 1.246 dB and a large bandwidth of 5.6 to 11.3 nm.
