Abstract

An integrated flexible-grid 1×2 wavelength-selective switch based on reconfigurable add–drop silicon microring resonators using strip waveguides is designed and experimentally demonstrated. By flexibly tuning the resonance of microring resonators and path phase differences via the thermo-optic effect, the transmission spectra with adjustable bandwidths can be formed as desired at the output ports. Our experimental results reveal that the fabricated flexible-grid 1×2 wavelength-selective switch provides crosstalk lower than 10.39dB. The 3-dB bandwidth varies from 0.38 nm to 1 nm, the in-band ripple is less than 0.52 dB, and the response time is about 17.6 μs.
