Abstract
There is a demand for reliable photonic switches and routers, of moderate switching or routing order, that can be integrated easily into photonic integrated circuits. For some time, low order MMI devices have been employed to provide a variety of circuit routing and switching functions. However, good performance of higher order MMI devices has been more difficult to achieve. This paper reviews the design criteria and design primitives for MMI structures and highlights their advantages and shortcomings.
