Paper Abstract

Integrated optical switches based on multimode interference (MMI) structures in a generalized Mach-Zehnder configuration can be used to achieve space-division switching. This paper examines the fundamental limitations of these optical switches and assesses their suitability for use as optical cross-connects.
