A novel planar polarisation splitter with the smallest dimensions thus far reported (0.6*2.5 mm/sup 2/) is presented. The component, which is based on an optical phased array, was designed and fabricated using conventional (high-quality) optical lithography. Insertion losses as low as 0.5 dB and crosstalk values of 17-21 dB have been achieved
