We propose and analyze via simulation a novel approach to implement a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor compatible and high extinction ratio transverse magnetic pass polarizer on the silicon-on-insulator platform with a 340 nm thick silicon core. The TM-pass polarizer utilizes a highly doped p-silicon waveguide as the transverse hybrid plasmonic waveguide. We observed an extinction ratio of 30.11 dB and an insertion loss of 3.08 dB for a device length of 15 µm. The fabrication process of the proposed TM-pass polarizer is simpler compared to the state-of-the-art since it only uses silicon waveguides and does not require any special material or feature size.
