Paper Abstract

The design optimization and implementation results of a 3-branch optical switch, operating at 1.32 gm, in z-cut Ti:LiNb03, are presented. A theoretical model based on the Beam Propagation Method was used for the design optimization. Power extinction ratios of 15.9dB (P1/P2) and 20.1dB (P1/P3) were obtained experimentally at a voltage of 32V for side switching. Central switching of 16.1dB was achieved at 35V. Good agreement between the theoretical and experimental results was established.
