NT22: Optical Switch Using 2-D Photonic Crystal Waveguides

Project ID NT22

Start Date Fri 2003-Feb-07 15:08:19

Abstract The main goal of this project is to design, fabricate, and test an optical switch using photonic crystal waveguides (PCWs) integrated with a MEMS actuator. A single mechanical assembly aligns a central waveguide array to select between lightwave paths connecting an input waveguide and multiple output waveguides. This project will limit its investigation to two-dimensional photonic crystal waveguides, which rely on total internal reflection for optical confinement in the vertical axis, and the photonic band gap for confinement in the lateral axis.
