Abstract

Silica-based <TEX>$2\times2$</TEX> thermo-optic (TO) switch using the MMI couplers which have a large fabrication tolerance of 110 (<TEX>${\mu}m$</TEX> were fabricated and operated. Important features of the proposed switch are shown to be a polarization dependency loss of 0.1dB, an extinction ratio of 32.7dB, and a power consumption of 202.8mW.
