Abstract

This Letter presents a beam splitter in a silicon-on-insulator (SOI) ridge waveguide loaded by a photonic crystal row of holes close to the Brewster angle. The propagation of the fundamental guided mode in this structure has been examined by the three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain method. It is shown that a TE-polarized optical beam exhibits the Brewster effect at an incident angle of about 39°, giving a small splitting ratio ( < 0.04 ) in a wide spectral range for silica-filled holes with a typical diameter of 200 nm and a spacing of 300 nm. The row of holes close to the Brewster angle is the perspective to be used in developing complementary metal-oxide semiconductor-compatible tunable devices based on multireflector filtering technology.
