Paper Abstract

A novel TE-TM mode converter using optically active polymers (OAPs), which can be fabricated much more easily than the conventional ones, was proposed. To achieve its phase- matched operation, two methods for controlling birefringence in the OAP waveguides were studied and hence TEo-TMo mode conversion with a high efficiency of about 70 percent was obtained for the first time.
