Abstract
In this paper, we report a wavelength- and time-division reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer using a time-space conversion and a MEMS optical switch. We verify the drop function and the reconfigurability of the proposed ROADM. The experimental results show the operability of the 20 channels (5 wavelength channels × 4 time slots) ROADM.
