We present optimization and design of nano-optical couplers involving dielectric nanorods. Using tens of elements, optimal array configurations are found to produce alternative responses that can be digitized. For realistic simulations, the couplers are modeled as three-dimensional structures and analyzed via surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Initial results are presented demonstrate the feasibility of compact but effective couplers with desired responses.
