Abstract

A novel polarization splitter on an InP substrate utilizing an MMI coupler loaded with a dielectric and gold layer pad is proposed and simulated. A tilted joint is used for adjusting the phases of TE and TM modes. 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. The device design was optimized to maximize the wavelength range and tolerance for manufacturing variations.
