    Abstract

    We demonstrate a compact, ultimate-low-power-consumption, polarization-independent, and high-speed polymer Mach-Zehnder 2×2 photonic switch. Our thermo-optic switch operates with less than 4mW of power consumption via a small-area heater, which is, to our best knowledge, the lowest value of its switch type reported to date. The polarization independent switching crosstalk is less than -25dB while the switching rise and fall times obtained are 90μs and 160μs, respectively.
