Abstract

The viability of combining chiral sculptured thin films with a standard Mach-Zehnder fibre interferometer to produce a passive, lossless, inline, polarization router and combiner is demonstrated. The spectral response of the device is calculated with respect to the input of orthogonal polarizations which are shown to be either efficiently routed to different output ports or combined at one port.
