Thermooptic bypass switch for multimode optical libers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Electronically controllable optical bypass switches are key components in one type of fiber optic network (Fig. 1). In such a network, the switches must have two properties. First, they must be fail-safe: if power fails at a terminal, a passive link between the remaining terminals must be maintained. Second, they must provide a high degree of isolation between transmitter and receiver ports when the terminal is active, so that the retransmitted signal will not mask the weaker incoming signal at the receiver.
