Submicron-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. © 2014 SPIE.
