Paper Abstract

A two dimensional optical switching device for fiber array has been investigated. The spatial commutation of an infrared beam from an optical fiber is produced in an entirely optical way : a photoinduced dynamic grating in a photorefractive crystal diffracts this beam assuring deflection in a given direction. Bragg condition is automatically matched. The large capacities thus obtained make this system attractive for its use in the optical networks.
