Abstract
In this paper, we propose and demonstrate a novel compact optical cross point switch configuration using electrical current tuning. The device is made on InP/InGaAsP material. It has a digital switching characteristics, a switching current of 40 mA and switching speed of nanosecond. For NxN switches, only N electrodes are needed. The switching electrode is only 600-micrometers long. It has a cross-talk of -40 dB.
