Abstract

We have introduced a new architecture of asymmetrical optical switch device which is expected to have vast application in optical communication and monitoring system. It has many excellent features such as low crosstalk, lossless and multifunction. The multifunctional device means the integration of single functional devices onto one architecture and Optical Cross Add and Drop Multiplexer (OXADM) achieved the point with its unique architecture. With the use of MEMs technology has minimized the effect of crosstalk and return loss. With the accumulation feature, asymmetrical OXADM has widened its application to fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and network security system. The main function of OXADM is to reconfigure the optical channel path while implementing add and drop function simultaneously. The multifunctional OXADM can also works as single optical devices such as multiplexer, demultiplexer, optical cross-connect (OXC), optical add drop multiplexer (OADM), wavelength selective coupler (WSC) and wavelength roundabout (WRB). With such the excellent features, the OXADM is expected to be unique, universal and with a high reliability that is used to overcome the various functions in WDM communication network today. The experimental results show the value of crosstalk and return loss is bigger than 60 dB and 40 dB respectively. The value of insertion loss was less than 0.06 dB under ideal condition, the maximum length that can be achieved is 94 km. While when considering the loss (6dB), with the transmitter power of 0 dBm and sensitivity -22.8 dBm at a point-to-point configuration with safety margin, the required transmission is 71 km with OXADM. The simulation was conducted to obtain the insertion loss of OXADM as multifunction devices in ideal conditions (zero loss condition). The insertion loss of each multifunction OXADM has been associated with the operation carried out by OXADM.
