Abstract

Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) based rearrangeable nonblocking optical cross connects (OXC's) using multiport optical circulators are proposed in this letter. The use of multiport optical circulators instead of three-port circulators can be more efficient for large optical cross connects systems. Performance evaluations of proposed large dimension optical cross connects are investigated.
