Ultracompact and low-power optical switch based on silicon photonic crystals

Beggs, Daryl M.; White, Thomas; O'Faolain, Liam; Krauss, Thomas F.


Switching light is one of the most fundamental functions of an optical circuit. As such, optical switches are a major research topic in photonics, and many types of switches have been realized. Most optical switches operate by imposing a phase shift between two sections of the device to direct light from one port to another, or to switch it on and off, the major constraint being that typical refractive index changes are very small. Conventional solutions address this issue by making long...[Show more]
