Prasad, BA and Selvarajan, A (1994) Method for cross-state tuning in a directional coupler with uniform \Delta\beta switching. In: Electronics Letters, 30 (10). pp. 816-817.
A new electrode structure for a directional coupler based photonic switch is proposed for achieving cross-state tuning in uniform \Delta\beta operation. Two different ways of using this structure are discussed. The voltage requirement for tuning and the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed structure in relation to the alternating \Delta\beta coupler are discussed.
