Abstract

The wavelength select cross-connect is an enabling component for next generation high data rate dynamic photonic networks. Application range from high performance computing to the backbone and the core network. In this work, we design and fabricate an InP based monolithically integrated 4x4 wavelength selective cross-connect prototype. It uses space as well as wavelength selective switching to achieve connectivity for routing any wavelength from a given input port to any given output port. Power penalty for simultaneous multi-path routing of up to three 40 Gb/sec input signal is evaluated. Less than 0.2dB penalty is measured for multiple and simultaneously routed channels.
