Proceedings PaperHigh-contrast symmetric self-electro-optic effect device and its potential use in a distributed-control all-optical packet switch

A high contrast, low voltage, symmetric self electro-optic effect device (S-SEED) is shown. A way of obtaining increased logical functionality from the S-SEED is proposed and the required functionality for performing optical packet header recognition and self-routing, in the context of an optical packet switch, is demonstrated. Device design and switch optimizations are also discussed.
