OPTICAL COMMUTATION BASED ON THE CHANGE OF AN OPTICAL FIBER ARRAY CONDUCTIVITY IN COLLIMATE TYPE DEVICES
To realize a photon network, functioning components and commutating systems capable of processing optical signals, are essential. The transformation of an optical signal into an electrical one as well as its reverse takes place in a signal source or its receiver. Up to the present, the main problem in constructing of all-optical networks is the lack of appropriate optical switchboards. The present work describes the way of optical flows commutation based on the changing of an optical fiber array conductivity.
