A single-electrode push-pull fused vertical coupler (PVC) switch using macroscopic crystal inversion symmetry is demonstrated. The anisotropic linear electrooptic effect in a zinc-blende crystal is used to achieve optical switching under 12-V reverse bias for a 6.9-mm-long FVC whose two guiding layers have different crystal symmetries. No switching is observed for the identical structure in which the two guiding layers have the same crystal symmetry.
