Multiphysics Simulation: An IEEE Spectrum Insert
Designing Energy-Efficient Photonic Switches to Support Growing Network TrafficDritan Celo, Eric Bernier, Dominic Goodwill, Huawei Technologies Canada
All-optical networks were envisioned decades ago because of their potential for high transmission speeds to address the ever-increasing demands on the performance of communication networks. At Huawei Technologies Canada, critical optical components, including thermo-optic silicon photonic switches, are under development. Analysis using multiphysics simulation aims to minimize power consumption and maximize switching speed.
