Abstract : The CRO unit was completed and shipped to Stanford for incorporation in the network testbed. Evaluation of polarization stability of the CRO has revealed a significant difference between the GTE Laboratories environment and Stanford's laboratory. Progress was made in development of the digital optical switch; and another RIE mask with finer segmentation in each curved region has been designed. The first 'proof of principle' of operation of 2 x 2-switches has been demonstrated using previously fabricated X-switches. Finally, in mid-April, 75% of the wafers ordered from EPI products arrived.
