Single-Mode Fiber Switch with Simultaneous Loop-Back Feature
A moving-fiber-array switch providing a bypass function and a simultaneous loop-back circuit has been demonstrated. Fabricated with single-mode fibers, the insertion losses for the bypass and on-line positions are 0.38 and 0.33 dB, respectively.
