Abstract(in English) In order to tackle the increasing communication traffic and power consumption in the internet and datacenters, dynamic optical path networks based on optical switches are now being investigated. We have been working on large-port-count optical switches using the silicon photonics platform that offers compactness, low cost, and low power consumption. In particular, insertion loss of optical switches including on-chip loss, and chip-to-fiber coupling loss is a critical issue. We have significantly reduced insertion loss of our optical switches using various approaches, and reported it in the latest conference [OFC2018 Th4B.5, Th4B.6], which will be reviewed in this talk.
