Photonics On-Fiber Switch

1x2 and 4x4 switches, as well as on-off switches are realized based on on-fiber technology. Switching speed is in the order of the modulator speed, which is much higher than the standard switches such as MEMS, solid state, mechanical etc. Application of the on-fiber technology to switches makes it possible to have excellent switching time without trading-off the other device parameters such as insertion loss and crosstalk.

Major Features:

  • Polarization Independent
  • 1x2, 4x4 and On-Off Switches
  • Very High Speed Switching
  • Low Voltage and Low Current Operation
  • Low Insertion Loss
  • Low Crosstalk
  • Low Cost
