Microelectromechanical systems or MEMS are miniature devices that have several advantages over conventional sensing and actuating technology. MEMS devices benefit form well developed integrated circuit production methods which ensure high volume, high yield processes that create low-cost sensors and actuators. OPtical fiber interconnected MEMS will provide new functionality in MEMS devices such as multiplexed operation for distributed sensing applications. This paper presents approaches in optical fiber to MEMS interfacing and some preliminary results.
