Abstract

We present a proof of concept (design, simulations, and experimental results) for an optical cross-connection device based on the optical White cell and a three-state microelectromechanical system tilting mirror array. We describe in detail the implementation of an underpopulated quartic White cell configuration. We discuss the aberrations associated with the output of the system.
