This paper summarises recent progress in realising rapidly re-configurable optical devices in Bristol. These include a monolithically integrated optical crosspoint switch matrix based on an active vertical coupler (AVC) structure, a monolithically integrated wavelength converter array based on similar structures, and a new concept for a rapidly tunable laser device. Operational principles, computer simulation results, and where appropriate, optical characterisation data, and transmission measurement results are presented
