Paper Abstract

Cross-talk characteristics of optical waveguide directional coupler switches using two-sections of alternating Δβ phase mismatches are studied. In particular, it is found that the cross-talk characteristics can be influenced by the presence of passive coupling between the waveguides outside the electrode-interaction region, by the use of unequal voltages applied to each section and by the use of unequal sectional electrode lengths. The switching diagrams showing the contour maps of the regions corresponding to differing crosstalk levels for each case are presented.
