Abstract

A compact integrating module technique for packaging a optical multistage Cantor network with a polarization multiplex technique is suggested. The modules have a unique configuration, which is the solid-state combination of a polarization rotator, double birefringent slabs, and a 2 × 2 switch array. The design and the fabrication of an eight-channel optical nonblocking Cantor network are demonstrated, and a fast-setup control algorithm is developed. The network systems are easy to assemble and insensitive to environment disturbance.
