Abstract [en]

An ultracompact polarization beam splitter (PBS) is proposed based on an asymmetrical directional coupler consisting of a silicon hybrid plasmonic waveguide (HPW) and a silicon nanowire. The widths of the two coupling waveguides are chosen so that the phase-matching condition is satisfied for TE polarization only while the phase mismatch is significant for TM polarization. A sharply bent silicon HPW is connected at the thru port to play the role of polarizer by utilizing its polarization-dependent loss. With the present principle, the designed PBS has a footprint as small as only similar to 1.9 mu m x 3.7 mu m, which is the shortest PBS reported until now, even when large waveguide dimensions (e. g., the waveguide widths w(1,2) = similar to 300 nm and the gap width w(gap) = similar to 200 nm) are chosen to simplify the fabrication process. The numerical simulations show that the designed PBS has a very broad band (similar to 120 nm) with an extinction ratio >12 dB and a large fabrication tolerance to allow a waveguide width variation of similar to 30 nm.
