Abstract

We present and demonstrate a broadband and polarization-insensitive 2×2 3 dB power splitters based on silicon-bent directional couplers (DCs). The working bandwidth can be from 1520 to 1630 nm for both TE and TM polarizations, with an excess loss less than 1 dB. The total size for the fabricated device can be as small as 50 μm, and the measurement results show good agreement with the simulations.
