MEMS Mirrors for Optical Switching Applications
MEMS based optical switches are being developed for application in communication networks. Although, very useful, most of them have relatively simple functionality. Many of these systems are now at a commercialization stage. Silicon based optical switches with electrostatic actuating are proving to be very attractive due to their application in fiber optics telecommunication. In this paper, a study of 2 × 2 optical switch is presented. The analytical and FEM results are discussed.
