Abstract

Three optical switch geometries have been compared and investigated. These are the Terahertz Optical Asymmetric Demultiplexer (TOAD), Colliding Pulse Mach-Zehnder (CPMZ), and Symmetric Mach-Zehnder (SMZ). Of the three geometries, the SMZ switch exhibits the best performance in terms of the minimum switching window width and output peak-to-peak amplitude. The control pulse energy requirements of all three devices are at least an order of magnitude less than the energy required by passive structures.
