Optical crossbar elements used for switching networks

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

An optical crossbar element that uses birefringent crystal plates and programmable half-wave plates is proposed. It is compact, cascadable, and well suited for realizing an array of switching elements employed in multistage interconnection networks. Arrays of two-input/two-output and four-input/four-putput crossbar switching elements and a Clos (4, 4, 4) network are also presented.
