Thermooptic 2times2 switches utilizing polymer technology is reported. The devices made of ultraviolet curable fluorinated polymer are based on directional coupler. The waveguide is a rectangular buried channel type with 7times7 mum and the effective index difference of the channel waveguide is about 0.5% for single mode operations. The crosstalk of the switching state is more than 36 dB. The fabricated switch exhibits very low switching power of 32.4 mW
