Abstract

We propose fast and robust mode conversion in multimode waveguides based on Lewis–Riesenfeld invariant theory. The design of mode converters using the multimode driving for dynamical invariant is discussed. Computer-generated planar holograms are used to mimic the shaped pulses driving the states in three-level quantum systems. We show that the invariant-based inverse engineering scheme reduces mode converter length as compared to the common adiabatic scheme.
