Culverhouse, D.O., Laming, R.I., Farwell, S.G., Birks, T.A. and Zervas, M.N. (1997) All fibre 2x2 polarisation insensitive switch IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 9, (4), pp. 455-457. (doi:10.1109/68.559386).

Record type: Article


We report the development of a polarisation insensitive, low loss, broad band all fibre 2×2 acousto-optic switch based on twisting the waist of a null taper coupler. The best polarisation insensitivity observed so far is 0.2dB.
