Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel digital silicon-on- insulator (SOI) optical waveguide switch. Adding electrodes on a symmetric vertically coupling SOI switch, the device we can change light direction and coupling coefficient based on the plasma dispersion effect. The novel device is operated at wavelength 1550nm. Beam propagation method simulations show good output mode pattern.
