Silicon 16×16 switch matrix based on dual-ring assisted MZI structures with fast and energy efficient switching

Abstract

We review our recent progress on silicon photonic switches based on electro-optic dualring assisted MZI switch elements. The ring resonances are aligned using thermal tuning to set the initial switching state. Nano-second switching is realized upon free-carrier injection with PIN diodes in the ring resonators.
