Abstract
A novel low-power thermo-optic MMI-MZI switch is presented. It consists of two different MMI couplers and phase shifting arms between them. It has been designed to utilize a modal phase shift of 90-degrees one each arm at every switching in turn and hence a half driving power of previous switches with similar device structures. This could be achieved by making the phase of input signals to the arms identical. The switching speed is also expected to be much faster due to the reduced power consumption.
