We present an optofluidic device for switching
light from multiple inputs to one common output. The device
uses a microfluidic channel filled with high index of
refraction oil as a waveguide, and moves low refractive index
interruptions in the form of aqueous droplets through
the channel. Whenever a droplet passes one of the optical
inputs, this specific input is switched through to the
output. This produces a running switching of one output
following the other creating a 8x1 multiplexer.
