Abstract
Two different applications of micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems (MOEMs) are described in this paper. The first one is a Q-switched fiber laser using a micro-mirror as switching element. We present the general concept, the latest experimental setup with results and simulations on the behavior of the pulsed laser. The second application is an opto-mechanical switch for telecommunication ring networks. We describe a free-space optical switch using a micro-mirror, micro-optical elements and a fiber bundle.
