Abstract:
We present a highly efficient polarization splitter and rotator (PSR), fabricated using 248 nm deep ultraviolet lithography on a silicon-on-insulator substrate. The PSR is based on a double-etched directional coupler with a length of 27 μm. The fabricated PSR yields a TM-to-TE conversion loss better than 0.5 dB and TE insertion loss better than 0.3 dB, with an ultra-low crosstalk (−20 dB) in the wavelength regime 1540-1570 nm.
