Experimental Polarization Rotation Published

Congratulations to Niklas for his recent publication in Optics Express. He experimentally rotated the TM polarization of a silicon waveguide to the TE polarization with insertion losses as low as 1.5 dB and polarization extinction ratios larger than 13.5 dB. A ultracompact (3.7 μm long) hybrid plasmonic polarization rotator operating around 1.55 μm for integrated silicon photonics circuits is used for the rotation. [PDF | Journal]
