Title: Optical semiconductor device

Abstract: An optical demultiplexer has first and second input ports and first and second output ports. When optical signal is introduced into the first input port, intensity of optical signal output from the first output port is equal to that from the second output port. When optical signal is introduced into the second input port, intensity of optical signal output from the first output port is larger than that from the second output port. An optical multiplexer has third and fourth input ports and third and fourth output ports. A first optical waveguide connects between the first output port and the third input port, while a second optical waveguide connects between the second output port and the fourth input port. Voltages applied to a first modulation electrode and a second modulation electrode work to cause changes in the optical path lengths of the first optical waveguide and the second optical waveguide.
