Abstract

We report the first demonstration of an optical self-routing switch with a wavelength filtering function. This switch uses laser mode vertical to surface transmission electrophotonic (VSTEP) devices. The light input signal, which illuminates the VSTEPs, consists of a pilot signal and data signals. The pilot signal controls the ON/OFF state of the VSTEPs and seeks an output port for the data signal. The data signal which has a resonance wavelength in the VSTEP cavity is selectively transmitted through the VSTEPs during the ON state but is not transmitted during the OFF state.
