A low-power 2×2 multimode interference-Mach Zehnder interferometer thermo-optic switch is proposed and fabricated using a cross-linkable negative photoresist as core material. The waveguide can be easily fabricated by direct ultraviolet photolithography and wet etching processes. The experiment results show that the switch has a low switching power of 6.9 mW and a switching time of 0.4 ms.
