Paper Abstract

A broadband (1530 to 1565 nm) waveguide polarizer is fabricated by utilizing the growth birefringence organic crystal at control temperature and hybrid with an organophosphazene contained sol-gel SiO2-PMMA IPN polymers. The polarizer consists of the fiber optic waveguide supporting different polarizer mode, which is design with optic active film in the middle of the passive component waveguide. It has a fiber-in-line structure and requires no high temperature process like poling. The measured polarization extinction ratio is about 12 dB at the wavelengths from 1520 to 1570 nm, and the estimated insertion loss is less 3 dB.
