Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We developed a scalable optical switch with a 12 μs reconfiguration time that is polarization, data rate, and protocol agnostic. The system can be configured as a cross connect for hybrid data center architecture, or as a wavelength selective switch with flexible channel bandwidth for ROADM and software defined network applications.
