Paper Abstract

Photonic crystal structures open new possibility for the construction of novel optical switch structures that are highly compact and functional. In this paper, we introduce two novel examples of photonic crystal switches: a mechanically switchable photonic crystal filter structure, and a low-power and high-speed all-optical transistor based upon cross waveguide geometry in photonic crystals.
