Abstract

<p><a href="http://www.osa-jon.org/virtual_issue.cfm?vid=26">Feature Issue on Photonics in Switching</a></p>We report development activities towards realization of fully integrated1×2, 2×2, and 4×4 cross-point optical switches for WDM-packet-based data networking. Two enabling technologies, quantum-well intermixing and etched turning mirrors, are developed and demonstrated in InGaAs/InAlGaAs InP-based material at a wavelength of 1.55 μm. We describe the use of both technologies to fabricate switch chips with different port counts.
