Abstract
We assess the design and fabrication of an optically wideband four element polarization controller chip in LiNb03 for use in the 1.55 µm wavelength low loss window of silica fibres. The design allows for mixing of the local oscillator (LO) and signal by the integration of a 3 dB coupler which should provide suitable outputs for a balanced detector pair. In addition, we attempt to optimise mode converter performance in the device by using near Z axis propagation. The results inidicate that there are some unforseen problems that arise when couplers and off axis waveguide structures are fabricated on this particular crystal orientation.
