Photonic integration has, by its nature as a planar technology, its own problems with the polarization of light. Without additional measures the performance of devices will become polarization dependent. Control of the polarization state can stabilize the operation of circuits. However, control also enables the use of polarization as an extra degree of freedom to obtain useful functionalities. In this paper an overview will be given of our work on polarization control in InP-based photonic integrated circuits. Furthermore, applications using these techniques will be discussed.
