Paper Abstract

We propose the design of a novel and highly efficient all dielectric three waveguide polarization splitter based on the phenoRenon of resonant tunneling. By consideriang a glass waveguide structure with an intersediate high index guiding layer (such as a i 1 icon) we show that one can obtain extinction ratios better than -30 dB in both the outer waveguides at a particular thickness of the high index layer. The proposed configuration should be of interest in the design of inline fiber optic polarization splitters and in integrated optics. I.
