Modulation of coupling in a photonic switch by resonant interference.

Abstract

A novel photonic switch structure is described in which the coupling of light between two fiber waveguides is controlled by the resonant interference of a third waveguide. The switching action is controlled by a small variation of the index of refraction of the control waveguide by the application of either photo-optical (Kerr) techniques or electro-optical… (More)
