Abstract

Hybrid plasmonic waveguides consisting of a metal plane separated from a high-index medium by a low-index spacer have recently attracted much interest. Here we show that, by suitably choosing the dimensions and material properties of the hybrid waveguide, a very compact and broadband TE-pass polarizer can be implemented. Finite-difference time-domain simulation indicates that the proposed device can provide large extinction ratio with low insertion loss for the TE mode.
