We demonstrate a 1x4 optical phased array based
switch in silicon-on-insulator using 12 interdigitated carrierdepletion based silicon modulators. The device footprint is 3.39 x 0.57 mm2 using 3.2mm long phase modulators. The measured insertion loss is -6.0 dB and the crosstalk is better than -13 dB.
