Free space optical multicast crossbar switch with non-movable switching elements

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We propose a multicast-capable free-space optical switch using tri-state switching elements (SEs) and investigate its complexity and loss. We also show that an N-input M-output multicast-capable switch requires only N · M non-movable tri-state SEs.
