Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate an ultracompact (3.7 μm long) hybrid plasmonic polarization rotator operating around 1.55 μm for integrated silicon photonics circuits. The TM polarization of a silicon waveguide is rotated to the TE polarization with insertion losses as low as 1.5 dB and polarization extinction ratios larger than 13.5 dB.
