Paper Abstract

The basic element of a two - mode - interference (TMI) device is the two - moded waveguide, which is coupled adiabatically to two single - mode feeding waveguides at the input and output ports, respectivly. As an alternative to the directional coupler (DC), the TMI - principle offers the potential of realising a new class of guided - wave devices: electrooptic switches like the X - switch, wavelength multiplexers and demultiplexers with a wavelength periodic characteristic, passive polarization splitters, as well as polarization independent switches.
