Paper Abstract

We propose a wavelength-insensitive optical TE-TM polarization mode converter using twist nematic liquid crystal cell for multi-mode or single-mode fiber communication systems application. Based on the simple and widely used TNLC cell structure, the optical converter has the potential advantages such as inexpensive, simple fabrication processes, and easy mass production. The low crosstalk of -28.3 dB is obtained.
