Low power consumption optical switches for high- to low-end applications

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

    Abstract

    This paper overviews the low power consumption optical switches for the advanced optical networks, and the actual devices using InAlGaAs and polymer materials are demonstrated for high- and low-end applications experimentally together with device designing. Future issues for heterogeneous integration are also addressed.
