Abstract

Orbital angular momentum (OAM) and wavelength are exploited to build a two-layer switch based on an integrated OAM multiplexer. The switch effectively supports real data traffic and shows significant power consumption reduction compared to single-layer implementations, enabling >160 ports count.
