Paper Abstract

This paper describes some novel architectures for optical TDM switching, and an experimental system working at 720 Mb/s; this includes a complete BER characterization. The architectures are composed of 2 X 2 optical switches and delay lines. The trade-offs between the various factors affecting their design are explored, and a wide range of architectures are presented suitable for different applications.
