Camargo, E.A., Chong, H.M.H. and De La Rue, R.M. (2004) 2D Photonic crystal thermo-optic switch based on AlGaAs/GaAs epitaxial structure. Optics Express, 12, (4), 588-592. (doi:10.1364/OPEX.12.000588).
The realisation of a thermo-optically controlled symmetric Mach- Zehnder interferometer switch based on an AlGaAs/GaAs epitaxial waveguide structure operating at wavelengths in the region of λ = 1550 nm is reported. The device is based on a very compact two-dimensional photonic crystal channel waveguide structure. The measured and simulated transmission spectra for the devices are in good agreement. The Π-phase shift switching power for the device is as low as 42 mW.
