Abstract
Thermo-optic 1*2-vertical coupled switches (VCS) were fabricated using a polymer/ silica integration technology. The switches exhibited low insertion loss (<1.5 dB), low crosstalk (<-32 dB), low switching power ( 80 mW), and polarisation independence. Based on this building block, a 1*8-VCS has been demonstrated.
