Abstract

We propose a novel ultracompact (5 μm) hybrid plasmonic polarization rotator operating at telecommunication wavelength for integrated silicon photonic circuits. The polarization mode of a silicon waveguide is rotated with >14dB polarization extinction ratio and low total insertion losses of 2.1 dB.
