Paper Abstract

Several types of switches based on optically bistable (OB) thin Fabry-Perot interferometers are reviewed. Applications for time-division multiplexing are proposed and demonstrated experimentally using both separate OB pixels and those coupled by transverse effects in arrays of various types. Compatibility with modern WDM/DWDM fiber optical networks is discussed.
