integrated photonic switches,"
Lasers and Electro-Optics Society Annual Meeting, 7 – 11 November 2004,
Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, Paper WA1
We report remotely
electrically reconfigurable photonic switches that intimately integrate
waveguide electroabsorption modulators with surface-normal photodiodes,
avoiding conventional electronics. These switches exhibit full C-band
wavelength conversion at 5 Gb/s and are remotely reconfigurable within
tens of nanoseconds.
