In this paper, we would like to propose a novel design for realizing optical polarization filters and combiners based on multimode interference (MMI) structures using silicon waveguides. The device geometry is simple and eases of fabrication. In addition, analytical and numerical methods are used to optimize the designs for these devices in order to reduce losses and device size.
