A novel shuffle converter by using 3D waveguide of MCF (multi-core fiber)/SMF (single mode fiber) ribbon fan-in fan-out configuration towards over 1,000 port count optical matrix switch has been proposed. The shuffle converter enables to avoid waveguide crossing section in the optical matrix switch configuration, and the principle device showed sufficient crosstalk of less than −54.2 dB, and insertion loss of 2.1 dB successfully.
