On-chip wavelength-routed photonic networks with comb switches

Abstract

In this paper we propose to use comb switches to simplify Banyan-type on-chip wavelength-routed passive photonic networks constructed by micro-ring resonator (MRR)-based optical switches. Compared with general wavelength-routed optical networks, the number of MRRs used in the simplified network is significantly reduced.
