A monolithic 4x4 wavelength-selective cross-connect (chip area = 3.2x4.6 cm(2)) is realized by integrating four 4x1 MEMS wavelength-selective switches and four 1x4 passive splitters, together with a 4x4 waveguide shuffle network on a silicon-on-insulator. Wavelength-selective routing has been successfully demonstrated. ((C)2006 Optical Society of America.
