Silicon photonic switch fabrics require low-loss and low-crosstalk scalable topologies, and optimized photonic components. We analyze the optical performance of switch matrices constructed of Mach-Zehnder cells for a DWDM network circuit switch that must suppress same-wavelength crosstalk and for a datacenter packet switch.
