Abstract
A few major schemes for all-optical switching/modulation is considered and the comparison of the values of nonlinear index change required for the device operation is presented. Each design is assumed to be optimized to meet the requirement for insertion losses of 1 dB (about 80% transmission or reflectance depending on the geometry of the device) and the switching contrast of 10 dB. A number of numerical results of transmission and reflectance in those devices are proposed in this paper. The advantage of the design of optimized integrated optical switchers/modulators with losses include extremely low switching refractive index change (delta) n. In addition, we suggest one new optimized design based on Bragg grating.
