Abstract:

THE PROPOSED PROJECT AIMS TO DEVELOP ELECTRO-OPTIC ROUTING SWITCHES SUITABLE FOR FIBER OPTIC NETWORKS. BY EMPLOYING LIGHT VALVES USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS, THE DEVICES TO BE DEVELOPED WOULD EXHIBIT MICROSECOND TO SUBMICROSECOND SWITCHING TIMES, LOW ELECTRICAL POWER CONSUMPTION, LOW INSERTION LOSS, AND LOW CROSSTALK, EVEN WITH UNPOLARIZED, MULTIMODE INPUT LIGHT. THE SWITCHING WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY A TRANSMISSION/TOTAL-INTERNAL-REFLECTION SCHEME.
