Abstract

For the first time to our knowledge, designs for mode-evolution-based integrated polarization rotators requiring only a pair of waveguide core layers are presented. Finite-difference time-domain and eigenmode expansion simulations demonstrate the near-ideal performance of the approach. In contrast with approaches based on mode coupling, no significant wavelength sensitivity is observed.
