An extremely compact integrated polarisation independent optical crossconnect is reported. The device can crossconnect signals at four wavelength independently from two input fibres to two output fibres. Total on-chip loss is less than 16 dB, crosstalk is better than -16 dB. Device size is 6*6 mm/sup 2/. An improvement in performance compared to an earlier reported device has been achieved by using an optimised concept
