Paper Abstract

In this paper, a kind of tunable wavelength selective optical switch was proposed with two-input/two-output fiber ports. It is based on tunable Fabry-Perot cavity by a pair of multi-layered piezoelectric ceramics. Each fiber carries N wavelengths, one of which can be selected. The tunable span can reach 5.43 nm under 10 V DC voltages. The relation of wavelength tuning ability and driving voltage is linear. The maximum of difference between theoretical and experimental results is less than 0.08nm. The quantities of maximum insertion loss, switching time and on/off ratio are about 3 dB, 1 ms and 28 dB
