Abstract
Recently an ever-increasing activity in the area of coupling between optical waveguide and ring or micro resonator has been developed. Devices based on this coupling held the promise of a new modality of light switching, amplifications and modulation. In this paper, the feasibility of an all optical switch based on the integration of the potentiality of microcavity resonator and organic materials having large nonlinearities, i.e. liquid crystals (LC's), is discussed. The device is based on silicon technology with hybrid integration of liquid crystals as a nonlinear material.
