Abstract

Mode conversion based on adiabatical mode evolution in a two-core configuration is investigated. The configuration can convert all the launching modes to higher-order modes from one port and convert all the launching modes to lower-order modes from another port. Mode conversion between the two degenerated high-order modes is also demonstrated numerically. The mode conversion feature is only dependent on the relationship between the effective mode indices of the two cores in the configuration, which shows the characteristics of high flexibility and large fabrication tolerance.
