Abstract

One of the most critical elements within the framework of wavelength division multiplexing optical network is the optical cross-connect. The core of an optical cross-connect is the optical switch capable of switching a large number of input and output fibers. In this paper, we report the design of a polarization independent liquid crystal optical switch. It is pointed out that liquid crystal spatial light modulator technology is a very competitive technology to realize a large-scale reconfigurable optical switch.
