Advanced Optical Components – Optical Switch

Optical switch (or fiber optic switch) can be a mechanical, opto-mechanical, or electronic device that opens or closes an optical circuit. The optical switch can be used to complete or break an optical path. Passive fiber optic switches will route an optical signal without electro-optical or opto-electrical conversion. However, a passive optical switch may use […]

Brief Introduction to Optical Switch

The advent and development of fiber optic communication technology has brought a revolutionary change to the communications industry. Nowadays in the world, about 85% of communication services via optical fiber transmission, long haul network and local relay network has been widely using fiber optics. Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology development and maturation has opened […]
