Crosstalk in a MZI based switch

Hi,

I am trying to design and simulate an optical switch using multiple Mach–Zehnder interferometers(MZIs). I have the insertion loss and crosstalk data for bar and cross states for every MZI. I would like to know how I can implement crosstalk in my simulations.

thanks,

      Hi Mj, are you trying to design a MZIs as well or you are using a given one?

      Hi Ravil,
      My design is based on a manufactured MZI that its parameters are measured and given. I want to know if there is a tab in optisystem where I can apply crosstalk or I have to apply it as noise in receiver?

      ok, in my case I used OptiBPM for MZI and induced crosstalk with OptiSPICE scheme for this element. I’ll check it with OptiSystem (since you working with it) and let you know
