Paper Abstract

Integrated Optical switch array architectures can be used to achieve several optical computing functions. In this paper we investigate a 4 X 4 switch array as a computing application. Averaging of given inputs is considered as an illustration to demonstrate the effectiveness of the idea and approach. Coupling coefficient of the 2 X 2 directional coupler switch is examined for its influence on the computing function. Propagation of error to the output is computed designing a typical switch. Extension ofthe methodology for higher architectures and other functions is suggested.
