Paper Abstract

A thermo-optic modulator/switch has been fabricated using the antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide. The device is based on a Mach-Zehnder interferometer with a thin film metal heater placed in the vicinity of one of its arms. Preliminary tests reveal that the device has a good on-off ratio with a switching response time of 1 ms.
