Abstract

In this paper we present a novel concept of N×N switch with full reconfigurability. A rapid prototyping technique based on direct laser writing is considered as an implementation technology. As a first step towards an N×N switch, the experimentally properties of 2×2 switch are investigated. Several samples of the switch with different coupling lengths and distances between the waveguides are developed. Measurement results of coupling efficiency are presented.
