Abstract

In this paper, a novel integrated optical beam router for MicroPhotonic switching is presented. The router uses a piecewise linear optic that steers and couples optical collimated beams to optical fibre ports with minimum loss and excellent tolerance to fluctuations in design parameters. Experimental results show that for a 1 × 2 MicroPhotonic switch, fibre-to-fibre optical coupling loss less than 1.05dB and insertion loss uniformity better than 0.2dB can be achieved, and the measured loss penalty for changes ±0.5mm in component position is negligible.
