Abstract

As fiber optic communication proliferates, it is important to consider photonic switching of lightwave paths. As a near-term photonic switching technology, titanium-diffused lithium niobate (Ti:LiNbO 3 ) needs to be evaluated by its use in experimental systems. In this display, a Ti:LiNbO 3 array switches video from cameras to monitors.
