Abstract

In this Letter, an ultra-compact polarization rotator (PR) based on silica photonic crystal fiber with liquid crystal core is introduced and analyzed using full-vectorial finite difference approaches. The analyzed parameters of the suggested PR are the conversion length, modal hybridness, power conversion and crosstalk. In addition, the fabrication tolerance analysis of the reported design is investigated in detail. The proposed PR has an ultra-compact device length of 4.085 μm and an almost 100% polarization conversion ratio.
