An all-polymer wavelength channel selector is proposed and fabricated using chip-to-chip bonding of 16-channel electrooptic polymer switch array between two polymer arrayed waveguide gratings for the first time to our knowledge. A low power penalty of 0.1 dB at 10 Gb/s shows its potential as a wavelength channel selector for a packet switching system. Further efforts, however, should be paid to improve upon the large insertion loss of about 28 dB and bias phase drift problem for the proposed polymer channel selector to be a practical device.
