Abstract
A Mach-Zehnder interferometer based optical switch constructed in a rib waveguide in SOI is analyzed from optical, electronic and thermal viewpoints. It is shown that fast electrooptic switching can be made to dominate over slower thermooptic effects provided recombination in the diode is minimized.
