A novel optical interconnect based on electronically controlled angle steering of spatial solitons is demonstrated experimentally in AlGaAs slab waveguides, The basic operation and the layout of the device, are described. A maximal lateral steering of 100 mu m was achieved, which is sufficient for the separation of four output channels. Using this device as a building block should lead to the experimental realization of dynamically reconfigurable N x N optical crossconnects.
