A photonic wavelength-division switching system using semiconductor tunable wavelength filters is proposed. A switching system using wavelength switches and multistage switching networks is discussed. A crucial point in developing this switching system is to achieve a large number of wavelength-division channels. The potential of 100 wavelength-division channels in such switching systems is estimated, based on InP optical integrated circuits. A wavelength network synchronization which permits the network to utilize such a large number of wavelength-division channels without wavelength misalignment and drift is proposed. An eight-channel wavelength-division switching experiment, using phase-shift-controlled distributed feedback laser diodes as tunable wavelength filters, is reported
