Photonic Crystal Polarizing Optical Components

Ultra-thin waveplate for optical communications

It has insertion loss comparable to that of a quartz plate and can have multiple axial orientations on a single element.
Compact and free polarization control can be realized in optical transceivers, optical modulators, receivers, and wavelength selective switches (WSS) in digital coherent systems.
