Demonstration of an integrated optical switch in a silicon photonic crystal directional coupler

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


We demonstrate a silicon photonic crystal (PhC) directional coupler optical switch. By engineering the supermodes of the coupled system to provide a slow-light region, the switch has a total length of just 4.9 μm. Thermo-optic switching with a 20 μs res
