Paper Abstract

We present the design, fabrication, and test of a 90 degree(s) polarizing beam splitter grating for 633 nm. This component is compact and its fabrication is reproducible enough to be integrated in optical reconfigurable interconnect systems. For TE polarization, the incident beam is undeflected whereas TM beams exhibit a 90 degrees deviation. We used electromagnetic vector theory to optimize diffraction efficiencies and the extinction ratio. We employed direct electron beam writing and reactive ion etching to fabricate a polarizing beam splitter etched in a photoresist layer deposited on a fused silica substrate.
