Barh, A., Pal, B. P., Varshney, R. K. & Rahman, B. M. (2012). Design of a compact SOI polarization rotator for mid-IR application. CODEC 2012 - 5th International Conference on Computers and Devices for Communication, pp. 1-4. doi: 10.1109/codec.2012.6509320


Design of a compact polarization rotator (PR) exploiting power coupling through phase matching between the TM mode of a strip waveguide (WG) and TE mode of a vertical slot WG is presented. Optimized cross sectional dimensions of the coupler have been achieved to use this device as a compact PR at 3 μm wavelength with device length of just 2 mm. We also investigate the device performance at the operating wavelength (λ) = 1.55 μm.
