Abstract : An integrated-optic polarization splitter is a necessary component in many integrated photonic devices, particularly in those devices, such as coherent receivers and optical filters, which achieve polarization independence by employing a polarization-diversity configuration. A very versatile structure is the 2 x 2 beamsplitter which separates each of two input ports into orthogonally-polarized output ports.
