This paper reports theoretical designs and simulations of electrooptical 2 × 2 switches and 1 × 1 loss modulators based upon GST-embedded SOI channel waveguides. It is assumed that the amorphous and crystalline phases of GST can be triggered electrically by Joule heating current applied to a 10-nm GST film sandwiched between doped-Si waveguide strips.
