Optical Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (Optical MEMS, or MOEMS) comprise a disruptive technology whose application to telecommunications networks is transforming the horizon for lightwave systems. The influences of materials systems, processing subtleties, and reliability requirements on design flexibility, functionality and commercialization of MOEMS are complex. A tight inter-dependent feedback loop between Component/ Subsystem/ System Design, Fabrication, Packaging, Manufacturing and Reliability is described as a strategy for building reliability into emerging MOEMS products while accelerating their development into commercial offerings.
