Paper Abstract

In this paper, we have proposed a novel compact electro-optical switch based on silicon/montmorillonite (MMT) photonic crystals and investigate its optically controlled on-off switch properties numerically by using the finite-difference time-domain method. The numerical simulation results show an excellent electro-optic switch at a wavelength of 1300nm was achieved with applied voltage as low as 0.5V, an extinction ratio of 20dB and a length of only 15μm.
