Abstract:

Fast optical-circuit-switches (OCS) having a large number of ports can significantly enhance the performance and the efficiency of modern data centers by actively rearranging network patterns. Commercially available optical switches operating with the use of moving mirror arrays have port counts exceeding 100x100 and insertion losses fewer than a few dBs. However, their switching speeds are typically tens-of-milliseconds which limits their applications in highly dynamic traffic patterns.

Recently, optical switches based on silicon photonics technology have been designed and built. Silicon photonic switches with microsecond or nanosecond response times have been demonstrated, and silicon photonic switches with integrated CMOS driving circuits have been demonstrated. However, the demonstrations were mostly limited to a small number of ports due to their cascaded 2x2 architecture which induces high optical losses as port-count increases. Moreover, the demonstrations were limited to single polarization operations, and narrow spectral bandwidths.

In this talk, I will introduce a new architecture for silicon photonic switches that is highly scalable (optical insertion loss < 1 dB regardless of port-count), polarization-insensitive (< 1dB of PDL), and ultra-broadband (~300nm). The new architecture uses a two-level waveguide-crossbar with moving waveguide couplers that configure light paths. Three experimental implementations of the new architecture with 50x50 ports will be shown in the talk.
