   Tunneling Optical Matrix Switch US Patent 6,842,573


The Tunneling Optical Matrix Switch is a new telecommunications switching component. Based on optical tunneling effects, it is fast, simple to manufacture, and low in cost.  Its small footprint allows very high density arrays. A 4 x 4 array is shown in the picture (at right).  Designed for operation at 1550 nm, it interfaces to standard "vee" groove (silicon) fiber arrays directly, thus simplifying integration. Custom configurations available
