Abstract

Simulation results are presented for a short polarization converter using asymmetrical waveguides, containing one sloped sidewall and one vertical sidewall. The angles of both modes with respect to the coordinate axes have been calculated as a function of the waveguide width. Polarization converters with one section (length is 196 mm), one period (2 sections) or 2 periods can be realized by selecting the suitable width and length of this waveguide. Tolerance of width and length of the waveguide and thickness of film layer for the polarization converter have been analyzed and will be discussed.
