Abstract

An ultra broad band polarizer that operates in the telecommunication wavelength band is proposed. This device, which consists of a single suspended germanium resonant grating layer, is designed using the inverse mathematical method and the rigorous vector diffraction theory. Calculated results indicate that the ultra broad band polarizer exhibits extremely high reflection (R>99%) for TE polarization light and high transmission (T>99%) for TM polarization at the wavelength range greater than 300 nm, and it has an extinction ratio of approximately 1 000 at the 1 550-nm central wavelength. The results of the rigorous coupled wave analysis indicate that the extremely wide band property of the TE polarization is caused by the excitation of strong modulation guided modes in the design wavelength range.
