Abstract

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.
