We propose a resonant-coupling-type polarization splitter based on a photonic crystal structure with absolute photonic bandgap. The scalar finite-element method was used to calculate resonant frequencies of the cavity and frequency dependences of the polarization splitter. This device supports single-mode operation for both transverse-electric and transverse-magnetic waves. We show that miniaturization of the proposed polarization splitter can be realized by utilizing resonant coupling.
