A device performing both the polarization-alignment and the wavelength selection is demonstrated by fabricated device. Waveguides incorporating Bragg gratings for polarization rotation and mode conversion having different widths are placed near to each other. For the polarization rotation, experimental results show that the field strength ratio in the two waveguides defines the diffraction coupling coefficient and excitation strength of unwanted modes. The excitation of unwanted mode is reduced, when a large radius short curved waveguide is used for input/output waveguides as shown in the experiment. Polarization aligned wavelength peaks were observed at the backward drop port in the experiment.
