Abstract
An ultra compact, highly integrated photonic switch with 2×3 configuration was designed and fabricated using the thermo-optical effect of polymer materials. By exerting voltage to proper compartment of the electrode, the input light can be switched freely among three output ports. The experiment results show: for the "insufficient reflection" state, the extinction ratio is 16.64dB for the middle output port; for the "bar" state, the extinction ratio for the reflection port is 26.8 dB. The power consumption is on the scale of 100 mW, and varies with different function mode.
