Abstract
Photonic space switches are useful elements in optical fibre communication links. This paper describes the design of 2Nx2N photonic switches based on the generalized Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Although these switches are limited in dimension, they have the desirable attributes of low loss, good loss uniformity, small size, robustness and ease of fabrication and integration.
