Paper Abstract

Optical switches are key components in flexible fiber systems. Thermo-optic switches can potentially provide low transmission loss, high stability, low power consumption and very large scale integration. In this paper finite difference based thermal and optical waveguide mode simulations are used to investigate the properties of thermo-optic (TO) switches based on silicon-on-insulator rib waveguides.
