Abstract

A bimodal segment of specific length and thickness between two single mode sections of a planar waveguide can serve as a simple interferometer. The configuration can be realized by etching a wide strip from a dielectric film and forcing a — vertically guided, laterally unguided — beam of light to traverse the strip perpendicularly. A TE-pass polarizer designed on the basis of this concept achieves more that 30dB polarization discrimination with a total length of only 5 micrometers, for air covered Silicon-Oxide/Nitride waveguides at a wavelength of 650 nanometers.
