Abstract

In this Letter, we show that digital optical phase conjugation might be utilized to construct a new kind of wavelength-selective switches. When incorporated with a multimode interferometer, these switches have wide bandwidth, high tolerance for fabrication error, and low polarization dependency. They might help to build large-scale multiwavelength nonblocking switching systems, or even to fabricate an optical cross-connecting or routing system on a chip.
