A novel polarization-beam splitter/switch with a Mach-Zehnder interferometer configuration was fabricated using a silica-based planar lightwave circuit (PLC) on a silicon substrate. The polarization-beam splitter/switch was realized by accurately controlling the waveguide birefringence and the phase state by laser trimming two kinds of stress-applying amorphous silicon film with widths of 50 μm and 95 μm. Fiber-waveguide-fiber insertion loss of 0.5 dB and crosstalk attenuations of over 25.6 dB were attained
