An MMI-based polarization splitter using patterned metal and tilted joint

Abstract

A novel polarization splitter on an InP substrate utilizing an MMI coupler with a patterned gold layer and a tilted joint is proposed. The MMI section is less than 540 μm. Simulations show that the device has a polarization extinction ratio over 23 dB and an insertion loss below 0.7 dB over the entire C-band for both TE and TM polarizations.
