Paper Abstract

This paper introduces a novel wavelength switch based on the grating light valve (GLV) technology, which has the advantage of high speed, high reliability, low cost and compactness. A theoretical model is presented on this wavelength switch and the configuration parameters are calculated. The insertion loss is found to be reasonably low, leading to the practical significance of this novel wavelength switch.
