Abstract

A two-mode optical combiner–splitter device is designed based on all straight waveguides that maintains the integrity of the two modes during propagation and allows for an analytic analysis. The design analysis has the potential to improve the precision of the device fabrication. The design is used in an analytic optical gate based on a nonlinear Mach–Zehnder interferometer. The design reduces the size of a previously proposed device and simplifies its analysis.
