Abstract

We propose and describe mode converter/splitter based on optical analogy of multistate stimulated Raman adiabatic passage in multimode waveguides. Computer-generated planar holograms are used to implement the coupling coefficients that mimic the optical pulses used in the transfer among quantum states of atoms and molecules. The mode coupling properties in multimode waveguides are analyzed using the coupled-mode theory and shown to resemble the multistate stimulated Raman adiabatic passage process. Key features of multistate systems are illustrated with theoretical calculations and numerical examples. Mode converter and splitter are designed based on the theoretical analysis and verified using beam propagation simulations.
