An integrated optical circuit includes a first device and a second device, which devices are connected by a polarization convertor. The polarization convertor includes a curved section of a waveguide, integrated in the optical circuit. The curved section may have several differently curved subsections. The conversion ratio is determined in part by the radius of curvature of the curved subsections as well as by the number of transitions between subsections.
