This letter proposes a novel type of 1 multiplied by 2 optical switch with a plastic-molded ferrule where an alignment mechanism is formed. Discussing the errors in ferrule fabrication, the insertion loss of the switch has been evaluated. The switch for multimode fibers has shown an insertion loss of 0. 7 db and a switching time of 4 msec.
