Abstract
The giant birefringence of SOI nanowires makes ultra-compact polarization diversity components available for many applications, like polarization-transparent silicon photonics, coherent optical communications, and on-chip quantum photonics. Particularly, the ultrasmall footprint makes these components very attractive for realizing on-chip polarization handling used in the future large-scale photonic integrated circuits, e.g., photonic network on chip. In this paper, a review is given for our ultra-compact polarization diversity components including polarization-beam splitters and polarization rotators.
