Paper Abstract

We present an electro-optic switch based on a guide-wave electro-optic beam deflector in conjunction with multiplexed waveguide holograms for wavelength-division-multiplexing applications. The presented switching device functions as a fully transparent wavelength selective cross connect for fiber optic transmission systems. The demonstrated device consists of only one driving electrode and does not require any moving component. It is capable of not only switching an optical beam but also reconfiguring many wavelengths form one fiber to many other fibers.
