Abstract
Tree-type network composed of optical splitters and optical combiners, according to the corresponding link rule, plays an important role in the all-optical communication and optical information processing. Based on the matured polarization control technology to realize routing and switching of signal beams, a novel tree-type interconnection network using phase spatial light modulator (PSLM), polarizing beam-splitter (PBS) and mirror, is proposed, including 1×2, 1×4, and 2×1, 4×1 switch elements. It is able to perform any arbitrary interconnection pattern, which has the advantages of compact in structure, efficient in performance, small size, and polarization-independent due to exploiting the building block pattern. The theoretical analysis shows the functional experimental prototype with large number of input/output ports should be helpful in the optimization and design of large-scale optical switch matrix.
