Abstract

We propose and analyze a novel (to the best of our knowledge) design of a polarization rotator (PR) based on silica photonic crystal fiber. The proposed design has a rectangular core region with a slanted sidewall. The simulation results are obtained using the full vectorial finite difference method as well as the full vectorial finite dif ference beam propagation method. The numerical results reveal that the suggested PR can provide a nearly 100% polarization conversion ratio with a device length of 3102 μm .
