Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We have been studying optical waveguide devices using FLC for optical waveguide claddings. Ferroelectric liquid crystal is an attractive material for optical switches because it has a high refractive index change of about 0.1, a rapid response time in the sub-microseconds, and bistability that dose not require state-sustaining voltage. In our previous work, we reported 2×2 optical switches based on a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. In the present paper, we report the fabrication of a 1×8 optical switch in the integrated three-stage MZI optical switching devices having FLC claddings.
