Abstract

We present an InP monolithically integrated wavelength selector that implements a binary search for selecting one from N modulated wavelengths. The InP chip requires only log2N optical filters and log2N optical switches. Experimental results show nanosecond reconfiguration and error-free wavelength selection of four modulated wavelengths with 2dB of power penalty.
