In this paper, an algorithm based on multi-variable Newton-Raphson method is developed to optimise the steering efficiency of a I-D Opto-USLI processor. The algorithm enables the evaluation of the phase-voltage relationship of the Opto-ULSI processor using realtime power measurements. The optimisation algorithm reported in the paper is crucial for reconfigurable photonic systems such as optical add drop multiplexers, optical switches, tunable optical filters and WDM equalizers.
