Application of Single-Stage Electronic Networks Concepts to Photonic Switching

Part of the Springer Series in Electronics and Photonics book series (SSEP, volume 29)


The application of single-stage electronic network concepts to photonic switching is studied. Structures of point-to-point and multicast directional-coupler-based switch elements are proposed. Some representative examples of optical switch matrices employing such switch elements are given. These matrices are nonblocking and contain only two active stages independently of their capacity.
