Ding, M., Wonfor, A., Cheng, Q., Penty, R. V., & White, I. H.(2016). Research data supporting “Emulation of a 16×16 Optical Switch Using Cascaded 4×4 Dilated Hybrid MZI-SOA Optical Switches” [Dataset]. https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.6270
The Power Penalty at 1e-9 bit error rate for two 4x4 chips was tested individually. The Power penalty for the 16x16 switch was tested by cascading two 4x4 switches. And the switching curves between two inputs were measured.
