Paper Abstract

All-optical switches being developed in the Femtosecond Technology Project are reviewed. New operating principles and new materials are introduced to attain low switching energy and very fast switching of 160Gb/s to 1Tb/s. Basic operation of the switches are demonstrated and some of the switches are tested in system experiments.
