Paper Abstract

The extinction ratio of integrated optical stripe waveguide polarizers fabricated with silicon monoxide/aluminum overlays has been measured. Values in excess of 50 dB were recorded. The effect on fiber waveguide misalignment has been determined for a range of waveguide polarizer widths and the effect of waveguide width on extinction ratio investigated. For a given polarizer system, an optimum waveguide width is found to exist.
