Paper Abstract

We propose a novel synchronous switch for telecommunication networks at a 1.5 μm wavelength. This switch is based on the acousto-optic interaction. In this paper, we discuss about the switch's constraints to be applicable in a network, and present an acousto-optic cell architecture using planar phased array piezoelectric transducers.
