A simple and general set of design rules for slanted-angle polarization-rotating waveguides is presented in this paper. These design rules are employed to construct single-mode SOI polarization rotators that offer significant advantages in conversion efficiency, optical loss, fabrication tolerance, spectral response and spatial dimensions relative to III-V components.
