AbstractThe guided-modes of Bloch surface waves, such as the transverse electric modes (TE00 and TE01 modes), can simultaneously exist in a low-refractive-index ridge waveguide with subwavelength thickness that are deposited on an all dielectric one-dimension photonic crystal. By using the finite difference frequency domain method, coupled mode theory and finite-difference time-domain method, the conversion between the guided-modes has been investigated. This conversion can be realized in a broadband wavelength with surface pattern of this low-index ridge. This conversion is useful for developing lab-on-a-chip photonic devices, such as a mode converter that can maintain the output mode purity over 90% with working wavelength ranging from 590 to 680 nm, and a power splitter that can maintain the splitting ratio over 8:2 with wavelength ranging from 530 to 710 nm.
