We examine crossing waveguides with three channels consisting of nonlinear material by means of FD-BPM (Finite Difference Beam Propagation Method). Specifically, we investigate how the insertion of a multimode waveguide into the crossing section of both 13 and 23 structures influences the switching characteristics of output power. We then confirm that these structures can be favorably applied to a wide variety of all-optical devices for integrated optics such as intensity-dependent optical switches, optical power distributors and so on.
