8 March 2014Submicron-integrated plasmonic power splitter
Using plasmonic waveguide for interconnects application is very promising direction to achieve high density integration
a good size compatibility with electronic devices. Thus, proposing compact and efficient functional plasmonic devices is
or prime essential to achieve the required system functionalities. Power splitters are widely used as one of the important
component of the optical interconnects and integrated photonic and plasmonics devices. We propose a simple, ultra
compact and wideband balanced power divider. The advantage of this device is compactness and ability to split the
power over wideband with negligible imbalance. The device is based on plasmonic slot waveguide configuration and has
submicron total foot print. To achieve the proposed optimized design, a simple and novel analytical model is utilized for
modelling the behavior or any plasmonic structure using circuit model.
