Ultrashort photonic crystal optical switch actuated by a microheater

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


We demonstrate a silicon photonic crystal (PhC) optical switch with a 20-μs response time controlled by a thermo-optic microheater. The switch consists of a dispersion engineered PhC directional coupler that is only 4.9 μm long. Optical and electrical i
