Paper Abstract

We show that by incorporating a filter that removes unwanted stray light, high performance multimode interference couplers with uniformity in splitting ratios of better than 0.03 dB can be designed and fabricated in silicon-on-insulator waveguide technology, allowing the fabrication of very high extinction ratio switches and modulators.
