Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate a transverse electric (TE)-pass polarizer using the recently proposed hybrid plasmonic waveguide. The device consists of a silicon film separated from a chromium layer by a silica spacer. The device was characterized using a tunable laser in the 1.52–1.58 μm wavelength range. For a 30 μm long polarizer, the extinction ratio in this wavelength range varies from 23 to 28 dB and the insertion loss for the TE mode is 2–3 dB. The device is compact; its fabrication is completely compatible with silicon-on-insulator technology, and its performance compares favorably against previously reported silicon-based integrated optic TE-pass polarizers.
