Abstract

We have designed and experimentally demonstrated an integrated transverse electric (TE)-pass polarizer on silicon-on-insulator platform. The polarizer consists of an asymmetric coupling section where only the transverse magnetic (TM) mode is coupled to the cross-hybrid plasmonic waveguide and attenuated. The TE mode does not couple and passes through the polarizer. The polarizer was fabricated on the silicon-on-insulator platform. The device is 30 μm long, has a high extinction ratio of more than 28 dB over 150 nm bandwidth, and has a good fabrication tolerance. Most important, the proposed polarizer has an ultra-low insertion loss of less than 0.04 dB for the TE mode.
