The static and dynamic characteristics of a monolithically integrated InP 1 ?? 16 optical phased-array switch are presented. The device demonstrates static switching with an average extinction ratio of 18.6 dB, on-chip loss below 7 dB, and wavelength dependence of less than 0.8 dB in the entire C-band. A 40-Gb/s nonreturn-to-zero signal is transmitted through the switch with a power penalty below 0.4 dB. Using a programmable electronic circuit, dynamic switching to all 16 outputs is achieved with response times less than 11 ns.
