Abstract: We proposed a mode splitter based on directional coupler (DC), which is capable of splitting the TE<sub>0</sub> and TE<sub>1</sub> modes without changing the mode order. It is found that high coupling efficiency (higher than -1 dB), low mode crosstalk (less than -16 dB), wide bandwidth (~100 nm), and large fabrication tolerance (&#x00B1;10 nm) can be obtained by a 24.4 &#x03BC;m coupling length DC structure, which is composed of a strip and a slot silicon waveguide. This design represents a first step toward mode splitter without changing the mode order, which can find important potential applications, such as optical isolation and mode division multiplexing (MDM), in large-scale photonic integrated circuits (PICs).
