Abstract

We developed a polarization scrambler with an embedded polarizer, angled at approximately 45° on the input side of the waveguide. The degree of polarization (DOP) of this scrambler is highly stable with the DOP less than 5% at 1558 ± 2 nm and less than 6% at approximately 10-40 °C. These scramblers are useful for long-haul communication systems and WDM systems.
