In this paper, a novel design of hybrid silicon plasmonic transverse electric (TE) pass polarizer based on silicon-oninsulator (SOI) platform is reported and analyzed. The numerical results are obtained by using full vectorial finite element method. The suggested design depends on gold rods that are injected into the substrate in order to tolerate the function of the device and hence the required polarizing state can be obtained. The proposed SOI TE polarizer can achieve -0.19 dB insertion losses with compact device length of 18 μm. Further, the introduced device is easy for fabrication and is compatible with the standard CMOS fabrication process.
