The waveguide-type optical polarization splitter, which utilizes birefringence of a Langmuir-Blodgett cladding layer, is studied theoretically and experimentally. By means of the beam propagation method based on Galerkin's principle, characteristics of the polarization splitter are analyzed. Results of the numerical calculation predict excellent polarization splitting properties with a crosstalk of -30 dB and an insertion loss of less than 0.1 dB for both TE and TM polarization. Successful operation of the polarization splitter was demonstrated in an experimental device
