Abstract
A novel polymer-based switch array using a vertical waveguide structure is introduced to meet the ongoing requirements of smaller and higher integrated optical circuits. The 1×3 and 2×3 electro-optic (EO) switch arrays with the vertical waveguide structure configuration are numerically simulated based on the beam propagation method (BPM). The influences of different parameters including the length of coupler, the distance between the contiguous lower channels, the distance between the contiguous upper channels and the angle of the upper channel on the performance of the switch array are also discussed. The simulation results show that the present configuration can provide better performance on the 2×3 EO switch array.
