Paper Abstract

The functionality, operation and performance of an Optical Switching Matrix for Local Area Network applications is described. Through the use of bulk optics and precision beam deflection assemblies, the switching matrix allows the connectivity of between up to ten input ports and ten output ports to be varied. The through loss of the matrix, when used with 50/125 multimode systems, is less than 3dB with crosstalk between adjacent ports constrained to below -40dB.
