Abstract

We analyze and propose a directional optical coupler embedded in photonic crystal (PhC), which is driven by an external command signal. The switching method uses a low power external command signal, inserted in the central coupling region, which acts as another waveguide. The switching process is based on the change of the coupler from the bar state to the cross state owing to the external command signal.
