Paper Abstract

This paper describes a four-channel optical switch module prototype for a reconfigurable optical interconnection network using a polarization-switched architecture and liquid crystal polarization control devices. Compact size and low insertion loss have been achieved by using integrated optical elements. The successful switching of 1 Gbps optical signals with little skew has been demonstrated.
